Apparently the only thing that wasn't plastic or augmented by a surgical procedure on Michael Jackson went kaput today in Los Angeles. Jackson had made a request to be buried with several children to service him in the afterlife.
Oh, and Roger Daltrey, er, I mean Farrah Fawcett also passed away today.
The deaths of entertainers seems to garner more attention and emotional investment* from our celebrity obsessed culture than, say, global warming or poverty. Bleh.
*Let's be honest, probably more for Jackson than Fawcett because:
1. Plastic boy has a HUGE global fan base (i.e. "nutters").
2. Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith are hotter.
