Maybe he will dunk with one hand while peeing in a cup with the other hand.

WHOO-HOOO!!!
That is so VERY!! I just L.O.V.E. the fact that people from all walks of life have been inspired by Michael--just wish he realized it while he was alive. Let's think about that. Any major icon you love, show your support while they're still here to be nourished by it. Let's not let another one pass without knowing what a treasure they are to the world!!
No peace until Justice!

There will never ever be one as great as Michael Jackson, so it is too late for us to show our appreciation. All we can do is to keep his legacy alive forever more. It's All For L.O.V.E.

Thank you Cher I agree. Michael is loved and appreciated throughout the world. Unfortunately TMZ doesn't read and monitor the comments and many are negative trash so I don't respond much anymore. It's okay to disagree but with respect and contructive conversation. Sorry you won't find it here much and consequently decent intelligent conversation is limited. People have better things to do than read that garbage...It's shocking and upsetting to me to realize how cruel and malicious the tabloid/media was to Michael throughout the years. Fortunately the people who dug in to read and research didn't swallow the lies and trash that often was written about him. I accidentally saw Martin Bashir on "Michael Jackson ChitChat" and he stated very clearly that he didn't think Michael was guilty of the lies and accusations and Bashir said he never saw Michael do anything criminal. He felt Michael was innocent and expressed regret for what he (Martin Bashir) had done. Murray and whoever else was involved should be held accountable. Pray that the Lord will reveal the truth. RIP Michael...
