RIP: Michael Jackson

Pop Superstar Michael Jackson has died of a suspected heart attack, aged 50.

I'm not going to claim to be a big fan of his music, but I can't deny the impact he had on the music scene. He certainly had talent, even if he was a bit "odd" at times.

One thing that has already been mentioned in the press is the accusations of his alleged impropriety with minors. It is worth remembering that when this did go to court he was found innocent - and that allegedly one of the accusors is well known as a "grifter" (or con-artist) and has been sent to prison for it.

So was he guilty of anything? Probably only of being "different", and that should never be treated as a crime.
