Pop Icon Dies, Takes revolution with him

From a buddy regarding the death of Michael Jackson:  "When I saw it on tv, my first thought was 'so much for anybody paying attention to Iran.'

If the protesting Iranians felt like they weren't getting enough support from the West, see how they feel now that I'm going to spend my time listening to Larry King reflect on his last dinner with Michael Jackson.  On the other hand, it's probably the best thing that ever happened to that crazy bastard governor of South Carolina.

my most memorable mj memories:
1) getting thriller when it was first released (my first cassette)
2) finding out that mj had been burned while on stage (i remember exactly where i was)
3) hearing what i guess is an apocryphal story about residents of b'ham seeing mj's white glove waving from his hotel room in downtwon b'ham
4) listening to the J5 box set mark burned me for the first time

greetings from tuscana, friends. i am a real lover of mj. this made me really sad. used to kick jackson jams on into high school. personal top 5 jams off the top of my head: rock with you, man in the mirror, the girl is mine, TYP, and thriller. but that is ignoring the J5 badassness.

how bout the hawks, guys? i cannot say for sure that they will be better with teague and crawford (rather than bibby), but i think it is a gamble worth making.

i ran into a pretty awesome celebrity in barcelona. pics to follow when we get back.

ps- got online mostly to find out about draft stuff. shaq trade. we will see.

pc knows i am not a big richard jefferson fan, but the spurs adding him and blair in the draft is strong. if ginobli is healthy, i give them even money against the loathesome lakeshow next year.
