Rest in Peace, Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson died of cardiac arrest today in his Los Angeles home. The shocking news almost overloaded the infrastructure of the entire World Wide Web. Go to TMZ to watch events unfold around Michael Jackson’s death.

I haven’t felt this rattled by a celebrity death since Princess Di perished in 1997. Michael Jackson was an icon. Although troubled in real life, his celebrity was almost superhuman. He was a legend, and I’m glad to have been around long enough to experience the sensation that he was.

Rest in Peace.
