Michael was my favorite singer growing up. I think Seth Green, of all people, put it best: "It's shocking and so sad. But for the first time in a long time, people are talking about all of the amazing things he was rather than all of the unfortunate attention he'd acquired."
That's the way it should be. I'd already been planning a post of some of my favorite Michael Jackson moments; I'll post that in the coming weeks when I have the time.
