My sister Emily and friend Meghan decided the best way to cure our hangover from Saturday night’s birfamday festivities (Happy B-day Em!) was to take a road trip from Chicago to Michael Jackson’s hometown, Gary, Indiana to pay our respects to the late, great, legend. We rocked out to MJ’s greatest hits on the way there and the locals continued pumping his music from their front porches and cars once we arrived. Everyone was very nice to us and the hundreds of other “pilgrims” that found closure today in the passing of the Greatest Entertainer of all Time.

    MJ was indeed a great entertainer. He was, however, a pervert and a child molester. It's amazing how blind people are when it comes to their favorite celebrities.

    On a lighter note, some MJ jokes:

    Did you hear about the new Michael Jackson burger? Fifty-year-old meat between twelve-year-old buns.

    Michael Jackson just died. The Culkin kid is happy but Casper is s***ting himself.

    Did you hear about the Michael Jackson Special at KMart? Little boys' pants are half off.

    Huh-HEE! Jamona.

    I have been in love with Michael Jackson from the moment I laid eyes on him. He will forever be in my heart. I just wish that I would have had the opportunity to let him know how I felt about him. It had nothing to do with his fame. When I looked into his eyes (when I first saw him), I saw something so special and so amazing that it pierced my heart. It is two years later, and I still cannot stop crying over his passing. I love him so very much. I will never forget the look in his eyes. His memory will be tucked away in my heart forever.
