    Will Xanax now have a new warning label :
    "high doses for extended periods of time may cause paleness" ?

    That's insane. I realize you build up a tolerance, but 40 pills, let alone 30, in a day is a tremendously high dosage. I'm surprised he could even function.

    i'm just left wondering why the doctors/pharmacists who allowed him access to these drugs aren't being prosecuted. Yet another failure of the US Healthcare System

    The man was a raging addict
    all the bizarre behavior and the emaciation all come into focus
    when we hear about the drugs

    and Hitler . . .

    but the point is that American culture is now a freak show for the mouth-breathing masses . . . and any cultured gay man should set an example and eschew the vulgar media . . . if we do so, we won't have blood on our hands and we won't victimize confused little boys from Gary, Indiana . . .

    Noren gets it.

    Yes, all the aforementioned were druggies, and, yes, including Hitler, but, what's sickening is that we elevate these folks to superhero status when in fact they are some of the poorest moral fabric among us.

    It's an extremely sad statement of the human condition, that folks would follow Hitler, or idolize Jackson, when, they were so devoid of moral character.

    I think the issue is not so much that he's the among poorest of moral fabric, but that his image is torn between two facets:

    -- Jackson the humanitarian, musician, performance, and recording genius
    -- Jackson the proposed pedophile and debilitated druggie Jackson

    He obviously wasnt devoid of moral character. He made irresponsible choices and actions that avalanched into his breakdown

    Some people are choosing to focus on the good in his life and not the bad, in light of his death. That's what people USUALLY do when someone dies. When someone you consider significant dies, do you go looking for and unearthing everything wrong about their life? No.

    Personally, people need to stop talking, posting, lifting up or critizing down the man. Let the man REST in peace. Enjoy his music and his contributions. Didn't the media chop him to pieces enough when he was alive?

    I think, as someone who spent 11 years in commercial broadcasting, it's o.k. to take a comprehensive look at who the person REALLY was.

    Without all the glitter, we expose some humanness, but, also, make him less of an idol.

    Clearly, MJ, nor Hitler, were role models.

    It speaks to us as a civilization that we can be such pack animals and so often weak-minded.

    It's perfectly objective, and logical, to look at these bigger than life personnas in an objective way.

    It's wrong to just look at one side.

    I'm glad that he died a respectable death.

    It would be VERY unseemly for a pop/rock star to die healthy and under natural circumstances. That would be so.....so declasse.
