Jackson memorial performers announced as LA braces
LOS ANGELES – The stage was set Monday for Michael Jackson's final act as the world capital of make-believe braced for what could be the biggest, most spectacular celebrity send-off of all time.

Ecstatic fans who won the lottery for seats at Tuesday's all-star memorial received the tickets and spangly wristbands that will get them into the 20,000-seat Staples Center downtown. The family announced the participants will include Stevie Wonder, Mariah Carey, Usher, Lionel Richie, Kobe Bryant, Jennifer Hudson, John Mayer and Martin Luther King III.

The legal maneuvering that marked Jackson's extraordinary and troubled life also continued on Monday, with his mother losing a bid to control his enormous but tangled estate. And in one of the few reminders of Jackson's darkest hours, a New York congressman branded Jackson a "pervert" undeserving of so much attention. ...

I watched the memorial on TV and it was grievious. From being saluted by a traffic cop as his casket was being shipped to the arena (did Jackson do one wit of anything for the military?) to when his casket was brought into the arena while the choir sang, "Soon and Very Soon". The fans cheered MJ and gave him the glory instead of the true King that song was about, namely, King Jesus Christ, our Messiah, of which MJ is not and never will be. My soul grieved more for those who intentionally choreographed this memorial to have MJ's casket brought out at that time. I couldn't help saying to God, So sorry that has happened, that the whole arena full of people cheered MJ and not You! I could hardly stomach the platitudes by everyone after that incident. It seems that MJ was far more to his fans than Jesus Christ; he was worshiped by them as their god.
Jim, as usual you povide us with good links. Boteach rubs me the wrong way most times, but he was on the money with his eulogy sans the RIP in the end.

An interesting commentary on Jackson's funeral, No Holds Barred: The Eulogy you won't hear for Michael Jackson. It is rather good, though not written by a Christian, so his last line about Michael "rest in peace" just isn't going to happen.

What a shame that the children are being turned over to people who helped shaped the deformed life of Michael Jackson, Roman Catholics, Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses.
