The News Frenzy Begins
On June 25, 2009 while having dinner during my vacation in Sanibel Island, Florida, I read on Facebook from my phone that Michael Jackson had died. Since FaceBook is not exactly a newsworthy source, I thought it was a joke and had to ask our waiter if it was true. Go figure, it was true because CNN was breaking the story on one of the TVs in the bar. I quickly turned to Twitter (from my phone) to see what people were tweeting about, and sure enough fail whale after fail whale I finally saw a post about MJ's death. A little later, I received a text message from my husband sending me the news that the "King of Pop" had died. Technology and all of the communication outlets that we have access to amazes me. It seems like we are always connected, no matter where we are.

I don't know why people are so broken up about him dying. Yes his music was good. But he was not a good person, at least not behind closed doors. I never followed him much, but I do know he liked kids a little to much. Therefore...I could care less, as cruel and heartless as it may sound.
