Michael Jackson homicide

Well it's official -- the L.A. County coroner has ruled Michael Jackson's death a homicide and also said that the official cause of death is lethal doses of Propofol. Basically what this means is that MJ's personal doctor, Conrad Murray, is SUPER f*cked. Doc Conrad already admitted to giving MJ about 50 milligrams of Propofol a night to help him sleep, and since it was Propofol mixed with other drugs that did the King of Pop in, it's only a matter of time before investigators officially slap the manslaughter charge on him.

Congrats, Dr. Murray. You killed a f*cking legend and robbed us all of one last kickass go-around from one of the greats.

We have to give the man his due: Michael Jackson was - beyond a shadow of a doubt - a great artist whose recorded legacy will endure for decades, maybe even a century or more. But an examination of his life is riddled with questions of all that might have been; all that should have been. It is more than likely that this was a severely mentally ill human being who never sought the treatment he so desperately needed; surrounded by fawning sycophants who enabled his sickness by constantly reassuring him that he could do no wrong. As John Lennon once said in the same context about Elvis Presley, another victim of the excesses of fame: "It's always the courtiers that kill the king".

The sad, inescapable truth is that for reasons we will probably never be able to fully understand, his talent and his career were ultimately wasted. Like Charlie Parker, Montgomery Clift, Judy Garland and Lenny Bruce before him, his brilliance as an artist would be overshadowed by severe, psychological torment and an unexplainable desire for self-destruction. Therein lies the real, unspeakable tragedy of Michael Jackson.

I thought Dr. Murray was suspicious from the beginning. Now the truth is coming out.
