I had to wait!!

Wait for  what you say?!!

Well after watching the new reporting of the  passing of Michael Jackson Thursday @ 6:115PM EST I just wasn’t ready to blog about it yet.

Quite frankly I am still not but had it not been for one of my readers on another blog I write I probably would of let others out there in cyberspace blog about this tragedy.

Now to add salt to the wound TMZ has posted the 911 call from Michael’s  Neverland home. Listen if you dare

I remember when I was a young teen and going the the Front Row (now extinct) in Highland Heights, OH and seeing Michael. I was sitting next to my dad and Michael ran up the aisle and boy did I let out a scream. lol! He held me back I was about an inch from him and could smell is cologne. I was so mad at my dad for stopping me but only realized that later he was protecting me from being trampled.

Anyway a great musical icon has left this world to pursue a new adventure. Deepest sympathies to the Jackson family my prayers and the worlds go out to you all during your time of sorrow.

I had a friend pass earlier this week and there is an old wives tale that says death comes in threes. Well I was on alert.  Farrah Facet,  my friend and Michael Jackson. As long as I have been alive it has happen like this. Yes I know there are many more deaths that go on but these  are of ones in my direct eyesight.

I was absolutely in disbelief when I was watching the news. I said to a friend I don’t believe it you know how the news is  lets wait for an update. Of course the were plastering Michael Jackson is dead all over the ticker message at the bottom of the screen. Then the report of him not breathing and then in a coma and then the final report of him being deceased.

I was numb.  He was just there and now he is gone. Life and death being in an instant I was reminded.

Now Myspace and Ning networks have dedicated Michael Jackson fan pages and I am sure there are and will be more to come

Listen to his music and enjoy the nostaglia of the memories of where and how old you were when these songs graced your ears.  I know from Thursday to Friday night I have been innodated with the sound of  Michael Jackson and what memories theses songs have evoked.

Do you remember the time? Of the white gove. Do you remember the time?

Do you remember the time? Of the white gove. Do you remember the time?

A Shaq Slap!

Shaquille O’neal will loose his special deputy badge due to an inappropriate language he used in a rap video that mocks former teammate Kobe Bryant.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, said he is not having that at all. He wouldn’t expect any of his deputies to conduct themselves with such behavior and will not tolerate this type of racial conduct. He wants both of Shaq’s badges back.

Shaq gets slapped by sheriff for rap about Bryant

“I was freestyling. That’s all. It was all done in fun. Nothing serious whatsoever,” O’Neal told ESPN.com Monday. Well Sheriff Joe Arpaio said you can be free.

What I think….being a role model should mean something in this day and age, when there are far and few in between.  When a person has positioned themselves in a  public office to be a public servant, the public is expects a certain behavior to be above the rest. That is all!
