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

    He's been on all the major and minor stations since it's happened. The radio stations out here are still playing their tributes to him, too. Amazing the impact that this man had on people worldwide. If you were lucky enough to see him perform in person, like I was, you understand what an incredible performer and artist he was. Right up there with Elvis and the Beatles......

    Wow. Per CNN, Amazon is totally sold out of Michael Jackson solo songs, along with the Jackson 5 songbook. Barnes and Noble is almost out. And ITunes is racking up record sales.

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

    OMG When I was at DisneyWORLD about 20 years ago, Michael and McKauley Culkin were in the cars behind us on Space Mountain. We had just sat down to wait for the rest of our fam, we thought they were in the next car behind us. When the next car came there were to HUGE black guys and a blond kid with another man. I jokingly told my mom "that guy looks like Michael Jackson" so my mom jokingly yelled "Hi Michael" and he turned and waved to us! They scooted him out a back door and it didnt sink in what had happened till on the way out we ran into a guard that said it really was him and McKauley!! WE were THIS close LOL The rest of the day we were keeping our eyes peeled for him!

    We're going to see Aretha Franklin tonight.
    I am curious to know if she will do any kind of tribute to him.

    Wow, out of curiosity I popped out to the iTunes store and looked at the top 100 songs. 39 of them are Michael Jackson and another 4 are Jackson 5 tracks! I guess a lot of people are rediscovering their love of his music! It is just a shame it has to be under such unfortunate circumstances.

    I just listened to the 911 tape and I cannot believe that the 911 dispatch had to tell them to put him on the floor. Any novice CPR giver knows that you don't perform it on a soft surface. The doctor was supposedly doing CPR the entire time until the EMTs came. WTH?
    Yup, with donuts!!

    Bug, I listened to that and wondered the same thing.
    I think the DR. was not on the scene when the 911 call was made. It was probably made by 1 of Michael's entourage - bodyguard or such.

    Well the man who was on the phone said that the Dr was there and was doing the CPR. What a goon if he was really doing it improperly as a medical professional.

    It is standard practice for emergency medical dispatchers to give CPR instructions when they receive a call. It's easy to freak out...doctor or no....when somebody collapses; it never hurts for somebody to give you a "check-off list" for proper procedure. All medical professionals are created equal and I could see somebody being really distracted with a patient like Michael Jackson.

    Like with Anna Nicole Smith, I'm sure she was very dead when the medical crew arrived, but they "worked her" anyway. As unfair as it may seem, some people will be "worked" because of who they are and the circumstances they are found in. I get it.

    I feel so sorry for Michael. He sure didn't ever have much normalcy in his life. I can't imagine living like he did.
