What he said

Reflections of a Newsosaur expresses again what I tried to briefly express in the obituary to my father-in-law.

Michael Jackson was a great entertainer, but he was a flawed and pitiful person. A month before he died some of the same people who are now idolizing him were making jokes and ridiculing him.

I couldn't agree more. I respect the entertainer, but the person was someone to be loathed.

Richard Nixon was widely eulogized even among those who didn't really care for him, so Jackson's praise surprises me not at all.
