"Hey There Lonely Girl" was by someone else, but those were the two popular slow dances at the time.
    I googled it and I I guess the reason it takes so long for toxicology results is that the labs that handle this are usually have a backlog of 4-6 weeks. I found quite a good article in my search that explains a little better what goes on in a toxicology report. Its worth a read.

    I'm sure there will be plenty of Jackson news and real news to hear over the coming days. Personally, I like my "serious" news with a dose of what's going on in the entertainment world. Even though the media can go overboard, it doesn't mean the topic itself isn't relevant.
    Yeah, you know in the big scheme of things taking a couple of days to remember somebody whose body of work will forever have such an incredible lasting impact on the world is not a big deal.

    There will always be enough horrible crap going on around the world to fill every millisecond of CNN's airtime for every single day till we all drop dead so, for me, the coverage of Michael Jackson's passing is not too much. What was it exactly that we missed these last couple of days? More threats from Iran, more grandstanding from North Korea, more news of pain and suffering from around the world? It will all still be there tomorrow, guaranteed.

    As for Congress observing a moment of silence in MJ's honor, I think Congress is made up of people too even if they're politicians - an oxymoron most of the time, I know - and they probably listen to music and probably grew up listening to Michael too, so if they wanted to keep a moment of silence for him that's their right. I have no problem with any of it.

    I would rather remember the fond memories I have of MJ than watch one more second of gossip about Jon & Kate Gosselin.

    Re: Michael Jackson is Dead at 50 yrs. of age

    NBC's Today Show this morning (Sunday) had a number of interesting guests and reports.

    Deepak Chopra spoke of his friendship with Jackson and his worries about his painkiller addiction.

    Chopra said that jackson suffered from both Vitiligo (a skin disorder) and Lupus--both of them auto-immune diseases which occur in adulthood--and can be caused by extreme stress in childhood--which certainly describes Jackson's childhood with his abusive father and the responsibilities forced on him as the lead performer of the family singing group.

    I will do some research on both and report any results here later.

    Btw--Chopra also spoke of how those diseases can affect body image--which for Jackson was already poor due to the emotional abuse he suffered in childhood.
    Chopra said this is why Jackson often covered up his entire body--including wearing a mask.
    Oh--and the body issues also relate to his apparent addiction to plastic surgery.


    Also there was a report that the Nanny said that Michael was ingesting so many painkillers to get through the rehearsals for his 50 Lodon concerts that she had to pump his stomach several times in the past week.

    Also there was an interview with a renowned forensic pathologist who spoke about how much can be learned of the history of drug ingestion can be read through hair samples. And since Jackson's hair was long they could make determinations of his long-term drug use/abuse by analyzing his hair at one centimeter intervals.

    Oh yes--Chopra said that the Lupus caused a lot of the pain for which Jackson had started taking painkillers.
    Also apparently Jackson had a number of bone fractures suffered during his career while dancing--rib fractures and various leg fractures.

    The more I hear about his physical state and his numerous chronic diseases the more sympathy I have for the guy.

    There was also an interview with a child psychiatrist who spoke of the kinds of reactions and effects the death of their father might have on Jackson's children.

    The Sunday Today Show reports should be posted as video at Breaking News, Weather, Business, Health, Entertainment, Sports, Politics, Travel, Science, Technology, Local, US & World News- msnbc.com
    (this may also take you to the MSNBC page which will ahve toe videos of the various reports.)

    One thing we all need to remember....you earn the title "Doctor of Whatever" whether you graduate at the very top of your class or whether you get that certification by the skin of your teeth.

    And do you really think that some people could not "purchase" CPR certification if they wanted to? Some people may not be above doing this. I'm not saying that any of this was this doctor's issues; I'm just saying that it can happen. Never forget the phrase, "Money talks....". And naivete is what it is.
