Death of a Ninja: Michael Jackson


Michael Jackson, ‘The King of Pop’
August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009

I just wanted to take a moment to acknowledge the passing of a cultural icon, Michael Jackson.

I obviously can’t speak to the controversy that surrounded so much of his life in recent memory – nor can I turn a blind eye, because he’s passed, to the possibility that the allegations may be true. His image and legacy will forever be tarnished by events of the last decade or so, but dwelling on uncertain facts at this point seems disrespectful. Everyone ‘believes’ something about what happened, yet most ‘know’ nothing – I think its important to consider the difference between the two now that the man is gone.

The controversy is over – we are now faced with deciding how we chose to remember this incredible artist, a legend in his own lifetime.

For the immediate future [at least], I’d like to stick with what I know to be true: Michael Jackson changed global music and pop culture, forever – and I love his music. He was an incredible talent, and will be missed.

Rest in peace, sir.
