    Do you think a memorial will be held in the Kingdom Hall?

    Seriously though, RIP Michael.

    Paying millions to settle out of court even when innocent is not uncommon. You have to consider the financial stakes involved in a trial, even if found innocent, he would still lose.
    Many people make harsh judgments based on little solid information.

    I agree.

    I could relate to some of the angst and hang-ups in his music as a teenager, especially as lots of it was steeped in JW terminology. Like this from Dangerous:

    And then it happened
    She touched me
    For the lips of
    A strange woman
    Drop as a honeycomb
    And her mouth was
    Smoother than oil
    But her inner spirit and words
    Were as sharp as
    A two-edged sword
    But I loved it
    'Cause it's dangerous

    So very, very sad. A mother has lost her child and children have lost their father.

    Indeed awesome music.

    And no doubt he was a larger than life figure.

    My take on M J ?

    On a human level I feel compassion to his family , the death of anybody. especially if relatively young and it is unexpected - is a sad thing.

    I cannot share any personal loss, never being a fan of his music. I admit though that his shows and dancing were awesome. Frankly I was disturbed by his conduct with children. If the same evidence were presented for anybody else I am sure they would be in jail. I believe that is where he belonged.

    I wonder if the J W element of his life will come back into the News? I don't suppose an elder will be asked to conduct his funeral !

    On a lighter note, it is a choker for all the people who bought tickets for the London shows..I would not like to work in the 02 and deal with all the refund requests....
