At least his estate is paying for his own burial and security. The taxpayers had to pay for Kennedy's--and he managed to bypass all the other true heroes who have to wait up to a couple months sometimes to be interred at Arlington--he got to hop-skip-jump it right past them out of more Kennedy-pity. Talk about riding the coattails of a family name right to the grave.

IT'S OK FOR OTHERS TO HAVE A FUNERAL PROCESSIONAL WITH THE COST TO TAXPAYER FOR SECURITY ANY CITY ACROSS AMERICA...FINE FOR THE CITY TO PAY THE TAB FOR OTHER PEOPLE...

My heart is truely breaking for his children. I know how hard it is to lose a father. My only prayer is they become as good as their father in caring about this world and if they do his love will never die. I know this will be the last goodbye for everyone. Goodbye Michael my your heart and soul be at peace. We will be looking to the stars and know in our heart you will be doing the greatest moonwalk ever. God bless you and thank you for your love. You will never be alone. I will always be there. With a sad heart Goodbye.

you guys are actually going to bury an empty casket hopefully not the solid gold one that was at his memorial i know Michael is just taking some time off in hiding and that is okay sure I am glad you guys are going all out on this because that will make me just that more excited when he rises from the dead. I love you Michael with all my heart but come on guys You don't think he is really dead do you? this is Michael Jackson we're talking about a man who loves Magic and "exscapism". He truly is turning his world from reality to fantisy. just go to elvispresleynews.com and there you will find out what I am talking about.
