I've been listening to the Michael Jackson/Conrad Murray trial and it's making me sick. It's just my opinion, of course, but, to me, Michael Jackson was to dance and music what Einstein was to Physics. I feel privileged to have seen such a super-natural person during my lifetime. Michael defied gravity when he danced, and his music brought joy to the entireworld. Showing my age, I vividly recall one of the first "records" my parents bought for me was a 45 of I'll Be There, and I love that song to this day.
Albert Einstein roamed the world with his own address pinned to his shirts, because he got lost everywhere he went. Geniuses have shortcomings and quirks - that's just the way it is, and they often need to be able to rely on us "lesser beings". I know Michael was an addict, and I know he was "old enough to know better" when it came to drug use, but his intense genius and outstanding creativity very likely got in the way of his personal decision making skills. His work ethic and perfectionism would kill the rest of us, too. The day before he passed, he was out-dancing every back-up dancer on his stage and working twice as long as anyone he employed.
He trusted his doctor in areas where he knew he could not trust himself. The more I listen to this trial, the more it seems like Conrad Murray is a lying psychopath and, yes, a murderer. It's as though he "experimented" on Michael, without a care in the world. No medical records? Different lies to EMTs and medical personnel? Propofol for sleep?
At best, Murray is mad. Bat-crap crazy.
Thank you for allowing me to vent.

I would, Wile, but all of it makes me too angry. This world just seems like such an ugly place sometimes. Michael was too precious a soul to be disregarded the way he was. Another happy piece of my and countless other's lives that is no longer there. Please just let this trial end in justice for Michael. Love him always .
