Michael Jackson Was Murdered
The official report is that MJ was murdered due to a massive drug overdose at his request. Yes, MJ's doctor administered the fatal dose. But even though drug dealers might hand an addict that final, lethal dose... it is the addict's choice to take it.
Should his doctor be charged? Yes, of course.
But at what point do we hold the "victim" responsible as well? Let's not lose focus on the fact that MJ made some horrific lifestyle choices that finally caught up with him.
Ted Kennedy is Dead
Ted's moved on to the great Chappaquiddick in the sky. Years ago I watched a very disturbing movie called "What Dreams May Come." It doesn't show the classic version of hell: Instead, hell becomes whatever your worst fears are.
Will Mary Jo Kopechne be there to greet him with open arms or will his version of hell find him eternally drowning in the same car he left Mary Jo to die in?
I can't help but believe that Ted didn't end up in a happy place, despite what others may protest.
He will now be eulogized with great fanfare, and the only thing sweeter will be the sugary frosting on a cheap bakery cake.
But all I can think about is Mary Jo Kopechne: Alone, cold, trapped, and drowning.
