Michael Jackson, King of Pop dies

My first thought: I’m willing to bet drugs (legal, clean, prescribed by a doctor) were involved, and that a review of the records will show some questionable prescribing.  First Do No Harm, unless it’s a celebrity?  Why are docs willing to engage in this kind of horrible, destructive prescribing?  It’s reprehensible.

If it is doc-assisted, please relieve society of this doc’s license.

Anna Nicole Smith, anyone?  Elvis?  A string in between?  This doc-assisted destruction has to stop.

(All of this presumes the most likely, a doc involved; if not, Mea Culpa).  Oh, and Matt wants me to say: no actual individual doc, living or dead, is implied in this post.

Second: somewhere in Beverly Hills there’s a Plastic Surgery group applying for TARP funds.


  1. No surprise at all, but it’s looking more and more like you nailed it.

    Daily shots of Demerol? WTF?

    The question now is whether the doc will be liable for malpractice, lose his license, go to jail, or all of the above.

  2. What about Farrah? I hate that MJ’s death overshadows the real loss. I am putting my Farrah poster back up as a memorial!!

  3. Wow, why didn’t I think of that?

    “It’s a Memorial, honey. She was a Great Actress”.

    Thanks for the idea!

  4. jim in texas says:

    During World War II, McMahon was a fighter pilot in the United States Marine Corps serving as a flight instructor and test pilot. After college, McMahon returned to active duty. He was sent to Korea in February 1952. He flew unarmed OE-1 Bird Dogs on 85 tactical air control and artillery spotting missions. He remained in the Marine Corps Reserve, retiring with the rank of Colonel in 1966 and was then commissioned as a Brigadier General in the California Air National Guard.

    Yet a dead pedophile was honored by Congress; no wonder Congress’s ratings are near single digits.

  5. Two thoughts about the memorial service/funeral.
    1. Will the man who as a boy was the center of the molestation be present?
    2. If so, would you like to have him identified during the TV reports, so you can see what he looks like now.

    I’d like to see him seated with family (parents and such, no with MJs kids) at funeral, but I am known for poor taste.

  6. 1. Thank you for saying that there were licensed physicians likely to have participated in MJ’s self-destruction. The FDA recently voted to ban the use of things like acetaminophen because of misuse and overuse causing injury and death. Apparently the FDA has not figured out that regardless what they limit or discontinue, people will intentionally and deliberately misuse and demand their physicians prescribe things that are bad for them. Anyone practicing medicine knows that people who seek more drugs are going to find someone who will provide more drugs. The patient need not be famous to achieve this relationship.

    It’s not so much the physician or the drugs as it is the idiot demanding them. As my father once said, You can make something fool-proof. You cannot make it damned-fool-proof.

    2. I find it despicable that the taxpayers are left footing the bill for security and traffic control for someone who left behind millions in debt. I cannot think of one other human being who received such worldwide hysteria and yet made everyone else pay for it. Few others actually DESERVE such a display of admiration. Last time the world caved to such a demonstration of unity was Princess Diana. At least she did something good.
