Michael Jackson

When the news of Michael Jackson’s death started to leak out, I was on a plane to Texas. So I missed those first few hours of conflicting reports–what I got was a flat announcement from a woman with a cell phone one row in front of me, ten seconds after the plane hit the Dallas tarmac: “Michael Jackson’s dead.”

I wasn’t shocked, exactly; he seemed as fragile as a china doll. But I’m still getting used to this version of the world.
