Dear #4. Please never procreate. I hope they figure out what's going on. A lot of innocent people could be hurt if it turns out to be real.

Maybe a Michael Jackson fan did it because she has not contacted his family or made any statements about his death? I've been wondering about where she has been. I can only hope her first comeback show of the season will be all about Michael as there are lots of fans of hers that are pissed off and have vowed to stop watching her show.
