Michael Jackson died over two years ago. I’m not ashamed to say, I cried when I heard of his death. I’m also not ashamed to say that I sobbed and sniffled while watching his funeral. I might be ashamed to say that I burst into noisy tears when “Human Nature” came on my car radio a few months later. The point is that MJ’s death affected me, along with millions of other fans; and, there was a general feeling that Conrad Murray was responsible for his early demise.
I tend to stay out of public opinion debates, but in the case of Dr. Murray I had – as a family friend said – “all this gusto come out” of me. “Throw that man under the jail!” I might have said that once, twice…forty-nine times. What can I say? I love hard.
