Blanket punishment

Comments

I admit it, I watched the FOX special on Michael Jackson last night, proving once and for all that I am firmly a member of the lowest common denominator. The man is like a train wreck, and though I successfully avoided most of the recent spate of specials and tell-alls, something was bound to show up on my TiVo eventually.

At one point, going into a commercial break, the voiceover said something that I never expected to hear in my lifetime:

Next: Michael Jackson puts it all in perspective.

Good lord. Not something I want to process moments after listening to him explain that his chimps help him clean the house.
