First whores!    

'Cleveland-West_Side' is the gayest moniker on the TMZ comment board. How long did it take you to think of that name? Burning Cuyahoga, now that would have been a great name.

oh boy, all those people that booked all those hotel rooms are going to be really upset. It makes sense, it would've been too much. I heard the road where Neverland is, is a very narrow road with barely any space for parking...so it makes total sense.

I originally thought it would be nice if they had a public viewing only for people who have Michael Jackson's concert tickets. It would make up the price that fans lost and keep money flowing back to the family to pay off debts that MJ has stacked up and it would cut his kids some slack with debts in the future.

just hold a public viewing at the apollo like james brown that would have been so much easier and have a public funeral some where in los angels and have a private funeral for the family these funeral arrangments are a mess

It was all probably Joe's idea in the first place. All those businesses who were expecting to make money this weekend by having their bed & breakfast, motels, hotels, parks and any other place for people to spend time while waiting for the over-the-top freak show to appear, aren't going to be very happy, are they. I wonder if anyone (i.e., CHP, private security, etc.) asked for money up front. That could have been the deal breaker. STOP THE MADNESS! Michael Jackson's music was a great addition to our history, but he was a human - humans die. Mourn for him in your own way, but he was one person. AND by the way, five (5) other people died in the past two weeks, too.

Perhaps no public showing at Neverland but he will be buried there (the cement has already been delivered). It was ridiculous to have a memorial there anyway because of logistics and the millions that would show up. The memorial should be in Los Angeles at the STAPLES CENTER (where he was rehearsing anyway) or at L.A FORUM which is now a church and the scene of MJ first triumph if not the J-5 first concert venue. The burial however should be at NEVERLAND because like Graceland or Princess Diana resting place (far removed from the masses), a Megastar of Michael statue must have a final resting place where millions of his fans can pay honor to him for all time (far removed from the masses and therefore better to control).
