Obligatory MJ blog post

I saw a comment in my spam filter the other day asking if I was going to write a post about Michael Jackson in my blog. The short answer is “No.”

It’s sad that he has passed away, especially at such a relatively young age. I’m sure the world will seem an emptier place without him. An untimely death is always cause for us to reflect on our own mortality.

As incredible as it may seem, I do not count myself among the legions of fans. I have the Thriller album and it may well have been his opus. He was certainly talented but, overall, his body of work didn’t speak to me. His music was too “pop” for my tastes. Well, he was “The King of Pop.”

May he rest in peace.
