Completely agree. Too much M.Jackson.
Let's offer a prize for the most appropriate and shortest obituary!
Absolute maximum twenty words words including definite and in
"Driven child star (that's three words), entertainer, sang, danced,
made money, spent badly (ten words so far). Alleged unusual/weird
personal relationships often in media. No children. (Twenty total?)"
And that's more than enough, since he appears to have self destructed
at age 50.
Now back to real life! And boy doesn't this nonsense really open up
our way of life and attitudes to anyone who wishes to criticise our
'Western' and 'Democratic' lifestyle!
