He’s Out of My Life: Goodbye, Michael Jackson?

June 25th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

We’ve lost a lot of stars this week to that great walk of fame in the sky (R.I.P. Ed and Farrah).

But I wasn’t ready for the emotional blow that accompanied today’s announcement of Michael Jackson’s cardiac arrest, resulting coma and death.

Jackson is the reason that a perfect stranger sang “Dirty Diana” to me over morning coffee, why I danced under a restaurant awning at lunch–and why I feel shocked and empty now.

Say what you will about the man–he was the greatest performer that ever was, and a bearer of some shames we may never understand–he will never be forgotten.

Tim Russert–honorasian, patriot, politico, brainiac, worker bee, journalist, perfectionist, NBC friend–we don’t know why we lost you today, but we hope you’re reading the Times somewhere nice in the sky.
