Michael Jackson dead at 50

The biggest story of the day — and what will be one of the biggest news stories of the year — is Michael Jackson’s death. Someone on Facebook described this as being our generation’s Elvis. And with the Internet, word of his death spread rapidly. I remember being in third grade and watching the world premiere for the “Black and White” video on prime time TV with my parents, then the video being the talk of elementary school the next day. He was (and still is) a pop culture icon.

Here are a couple of interesting news stories related to Jackson’s death. This Los Angeles Times article goes into detail about the news of the day, while this USA Today article is more of a news obituary. The¬† main page of the Los Angeles Times also has numerous articles and reaction.

    MJ was an odd dude but what a musical talent. He too—like me—is a native Hoosier.
