  1. The picture shown on this page speaks volumes. While Michael Jackson was undoubtedly a giant in the entertainment industry and a multi-talented performer, he was a bizarre and twisted human being who bore no resemblance at all to the person he was even 20 years ago. The bleached skin and horrifically altered features gave him the look of an alien masquerading as a human. There is no doubt that Jackson had an unhealthy, if not immoral and illegal interest in young boys. He turned his home into an amusement park, with life-size statues of super-heroes lining the hallways. It was the classic lair of a pedophile. I was a fan of Jackson's music, but was repulsed by his appearance and public behavior, especially during his molestation trial, and am convinced that he was guilty of all charges. There was just too much circumstantial evidence which said that he gave alcohol to young boys and slept with them. An unmarried 40-year-old man, in our society, doesn't do sleep-overs with 12-year-old kids. A father isn't supposed to dangle his child over the balcony of a multi-story hotel. A grown man isn't supposed to speak like a pre-pubescent child. So I question all this adulation and demonstrations of public grief at this entertainer's passing. His performances will be remembers, but they constituted a very small percentage of his life.
