    I do not disagree. I thought her timing was interesting. I'm waiting to hear that she is volunteering to take a DNA test.

    I've been trying to get memorial tickets since the announcement. Internet has been jammed, though.

    For an utterly tasteless and yet in some ways arguably pretty funny take on the situation...

    YouTube search for "Michael Jackson Sock Puppet Theatre".

    This video will completely piss off a lot of people, but may also serve as something of a litmus test of where people stand. Do you see this as so over the top that its somewhat entertaining even if massively offensive? Do you want this Greg Benson guy who did this to suffer a slow death? Or can you compulsively not stop watching it?

    If the reports of his NOT eating are true--anorexia can severely damage heart muscle.

    Anyone remember Karen Carpenter's death from cardiac arrest due to the damage done by her anorexia?

    (Actually anorexia damages all muscles--but the failure of heart muscle is the one that kills you.)

    The report is that he was only eating one meal a day. Sorry--I've seen so many people who worked for/with him talking about all his problems in the last few days that I can't remember who it was who talked about "Begging Michael to eat more than once a day."

    Does anyone else know who that was?

    As part of the one the reports on one of the entertainment news shows last night--maybe Access Hollywood?--or ET?(I watched three in a row )--that Debbie says she IS willing to take a DNA test if necessary.

    In today's news--

    "Michael Jackson News

    AP, Jul 3, 2009 5:36 pm PDT

    The powerful sedative Diprivan was found in Michael Jackson's home, a law enforcement official said Friday as the city planned for a massive crowd at the singer's memorial service.Diprivan is an anesthetic widely used in operating rooms to induce unconsciousness. Also known as Propofol, it's given intravenously and is very unusual to have in a private home.

    The law enforcement official spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to speak about the matter.
    A Los Angeles Police spokesman, Lt. John Romero, declined to discuss the case. "It's an ongoing investigation," he said.
    The cause of Jackson's death has not been determined. Autopsy results are not expected for several weeks.


    Jackson was known to have suffered from severe insomnia. In the weeks before his death, Cherilyn Lee, a registered nurse who was working with the singer, said Jackson pleaded for Diprivan amid the stress of preparing for a massive series of comeback concerts.
    Lee said she repeatedly rejected his demands because the drug was unsafe.

    Told Friday that Diprivan had been found at Jackson's house, she said, "I did everything I could to warn him against it."
    Jackson had trouble sleeping as far back as 1989, said one of his former publicists, Rob Goldstone, who spent a month on the road with Jackson during the "Bad" tour.

    "He had very bad nightmares, he found it very difficult to sleep," Goldstone said.

    Diprivan, which has a milky appearance, is sometimes nicknamed "milk of amnesia." Last fall, doctors from the Mayo Clinic warned at a conference that in rare cases, Diprivan can trigger an irreversible chain of events leading to heart dysfunction and death.
    They said three patients receiving Diprivan to treat severe seizures had suffered cardiac arrest, and two died. The doctors said the clinic stopped using Diprivan to treat such patients because of the danger.

    The drug's manufacturer, AstraZeneca PLC, warns that patients using Diprivan should be continuously monitored, and in a tiny number of cases patients using it have suffered cardiac arrest, although it was not clear the drug was to blame.

    Authorities are investigating allegations that the 50-year-old Jackson had been consuming painkillers, sedatives and antidepressants. Any criminal charges would depend on whether Jackson had been overly prescribed medications, given drugs inappropriate for his needs, or if doctors knowingly prescribed Jackson medications under an assumed name.

    Edward Chernoff, an attorney for Jackson's doctor, Dr. Conrad Murray, said Friday through a spokeswoman that he had agreed with investigators not to comment until information is released through official channels. Murray was in Jackson's rented mansion when the singer went into cardiac arrest in his bedroom on June 25."

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

    Wow. After what I've heard today, Joe Jackson is complete trash.

    According to "sources in the Jackson camp" (ie: probably Jermaine and Janet, lol) certain family pictures are missing from Michael's home, and since Joe has been the only person inside of Michael's house before the pics were released they're pretty sure he sold them to different outlets. He was NOT invited to the BET awards; apparently he took Michael's invite from the house and told BET that he was speaking for the family and it was only a routine call to Katherine that stopped that from happening. Apparently Katherine was LIVID when she found out and requested that Janet speak instead.

    He was also very unhappy about being left out of the will and is seriously thinking about contesting it. Considering Michael signed each paragraph of the will and had a few witnesses, I don't think a judge in America will give him a penny. The rest of the family has stated that they will fight anyone that contests the will, so he will definitely have a fight on his hands.

    Such nasty business.

    Death has this wierd ability to bring out the ugly side in people, whether there is money or not. Somebody's always got to "clown".
