Okay now, there is no need to start talking about people who will die someday and how sad we will be. You are stretching this face-your-own-mortality thing way too far now.

We are depressed enough as it is... no need to give us something else to discuss with our therapist.

Not sure why people fear death. Life happens, death comes...end of story. No need to cry about it.

I mentioned to my parental units that this MJ crap was out of hand; "it's not as if Paul died!"

Mom looked at me, "Paul who?"

Geezers. They're not even 65 yet. How can they not know?

Paul McCartney was with the Beatles, not the Rolling Stones. But if your comment was a joke, I apologize, 10:41 AM.

Paul is truly greatness; he is a Beatle. The person whose funeral was on TV yesterday was a freak child molester.

I have a fever, and the only prescription is more banjo.

11:23 what are you gay?

Somebody stringing a banjo (playing with themselves)is not the best posts on this blog.

Slept in the same bed with young boys (admitted himself). Paid a undisclosed, seven-digit sum to settle a civil suit. Proof enough for me.

Police couldn't prove O.J. was a murderer, but he dang sure is.

11:48, if there are children capable of providing a judge explicit and uniquely individual descriptions of a man's "fully whatever" private parts; in what circumstances is that not a problem?

good try but no cigar. civil, hah! anyone can be sued in a civil suit.

sleeping in the same bed with young boys. big deal. that doesn't mean he's a pedifile.

grow up

Is there a contradiction in "undisclosed" and "seven-digit?"

Just saying!

Now that the molester is dead I expect a few young men to come out of the closet and tell the real story.

To all you haters

To judge somebody based on something you truly do not know, is not wisdom, but ignorance.

In the summer of 1993, Jackson was accused of child sexual abuse by a 13-year-old boy named Jordan Chandler and his father, Evan Chandler, a dentist.[86] A year after Jackson met the boy, under the influence of sodium amytal, a controversial sedative, Jordan told his father that Jackson had touched his penis.[87] The father was tape-recorded discussing his intention to pursue charges, where he said, "If I go through with this, I win big-time. There's no way I lose. I will get everything I want and they will be destroyed forever ... Michael's career will be over".[88] He and Jackson engaged in unsuccessful negotiations to reach a financial settlement; the negotiations were initiated by Chandler but Jackson did make several counter offers. Jordan told a psychiatrist and later police that he and Jackson had engaged in acts of kissing, masturbation and oral sex, as well as giving a detailed description of what he alleged were the singer's genitals.[89]

An official investigation began, with Jordan's mother adamant that there was no wrongdoing on Jackson's part. Neverland Ranch was searched; and multiple children and family members denied that Jackson was a pedophile,[89] though his image took a further hit when his older sister, La Toya, accused him of being a pedophile, a statement she later retracted.[90] Jackson agreed to a 25-minute strip search, conducted by police and doctors at his ranch, required to see if a description provided by Jordan of Jackson's genitals was accurate. Doctors concluded there were strong similarities, but it was not a definitive match.[90] His friends said he never recovered from the humiliation. He described the search in an emotional public statement, and proclaimed his innocence.[86]

He began taking painkillers and sedatives, including Valium, Ativan, and Xanax, in part to ease chronic pain resulting from an accident with stage rigging during the Dangerous Tour, and for joint inflammation associated with the lupus, but also to ease the panic attacks stemming from the allegations against him. By the fall of 1993, he was addicted.[91] His health deteriorated to such an extent that he canceled the remainder of the Dangerous World Tour and went into rehab in London for a few months, dramatically disappearing from public view with the help of Elizabeth Taylor and Elton John.[92] The stress of the allegations also caused him to stop eating, and he lost a significant amount of weight.[93] With his health in decline, his friends and legal advisers took over his defense and finances. They called on him to settle the child-abuse allegations out of court, believing he could not endure a lengthy trial.[92][93]

The tabloids painted him in an extremely unfavorable light.[94] Complaints about them included bias against Jackson, paying for stories about alleged criminal activity, and buying leaked confidential material from the police investigation.[95] On January 1, 1994, Jackson settled with the Chandlers out of court for $22 million, after which Jordan stopped co-operating regarding criminal proceedings. Jackson was never charged, and the state closed its criminal investigation, citing lack of evidence.[96]

In a series of interviews with Martin Bashir, broadcast in 2003 as Living with Michael Jackson, Jackson was seen holding hands and discussing sleeping arrangements with Gavin Arvizo, 13, who later accused him of sexual abuse.[123] Shortly after the documentary aired, Jackson was charged with seven counts of child molestation and two counts of administering an intoxicating agent in relation to Arvizo.[123]

Jackson denied the allegations, saying the sleepovers were not sexual in nature. Elizabeth Taylor defended him, saying she had been there when they were in the bed. "There was nothing abnormal about it," she told Larry King. "There was no touchy-feely going on. We laughed like children and we watched a lot of Walt Disney. There was nothing odd about it."[124] During the investigation, Jackson was examined by mental health professional Dr. Stan Katz; the doctor spent several hours with the accuser too. Katz said Jackson was a regressed 10-year-old, and did not fit the profile of a pedophile.[125]

During the two years between the charges and the trial, Jackon reportedly became dependent on pethidine (Demerol), and lost a lot of weight. The People v. Jackson began on January 31, 2005, in Santa Maria, California, and lasted five months, until the end of May. Jackson was acquitted on all counts.[126][127][128] After the trial, he relocated to the Persian Gulf island of Bahrain, as a guest of Sheikh Abdullah.[129]

I've personally never been afraid of dying. How I die is another story. Don't want a long drawnout bout with cancer or anything like that. But if I found out I was going to die in my sleep tonight, I really don't think it would bother me. This isn't to say that I don't value my own life. I do, and it's because of that reason that I live it each and every day...by spending it with the ones I love and doing the things that I love to do.

1) Go banjo man, go. I like a little music in my life.

2) Michael Jackson being dead is a good thing. I never understood parents thinking it was OK for their kids to idolize that weirdo.

3) Dying? Bring it on. I've never found anything that everybody can do to be so hard.

4) 3:01------
Wanna sell me your cut and paste buttons?

Why do you suppose there aren't a bunch of gold diggers accusing Paul McCartney of child molestation like poor Mikey?

Could it be that it's because he never did it?

Tell me again why I ought to think MJ was innocent.

Sir Paul will probably just play a buncha silly love songs.

I really wanted to see Wings Over America (the '76 tour).

Maybe I can redeem myself this year.

Back off Banjo Man! Maybe his G string gets wadded up a little sometime somewhere, but Banjo is entertaining. Not like some of you Banjo Challenged Ones. Go Banjo Man! Besides, Banjo Men have a hard time getting a gig. Posting about Banjos is maybe the next best thing. When Banjos are outlawed, only Banjo Outlaws will have one.

Hey, 10:01. I'm 9:36, and I almost died 2 years ago. Was air-lifted out and came very close to death. And that is when I decided it wasn't such a bad thing. When you actually face it, realize it might truly happen to you...TODAY...if you have faith in God and an afterlife, it wasn't at all scary to me. I was resigned to whatever was next in store, not eager to die, but ok with it. So I feel very comfortable saying that people shouldn't consider death such a bad thing. I wouldn't have wanted everyone saying "oh, how sad, oh woe is me" and bawling about it. I would have wanted them to CELEBRATE my life and the fact that the hard part (on earth) is now over. That's GOOD news, not bad.
