The sad death of Michael Jackson

The only comment I've found worth reading was this one by Hadley Freeman in The Guardian - about the false dream of celebrity.

My first reaction on hearing of the death of MJ was one of sadness - yet another case of someone who seemed to have it all but found no happiness as a result. One day on and I'm already fed up with all the coverage.

Reminded me of the royal Family. Dysfunctional childhood + riches of Croesus = extremely dysfunctional adulthood. Sad but hey - at least he was rich and sad unlike the many zillions of Africa and all the war zones of the world. There are a lot of people I feel for more than MJ. Am I being harsh?
