Short Notes: Blame It On The Boogie Edition

Ed McMahon

For some reason, that title just sounded right. A few notes:

Before I go, (and I know I’m going to get a little flack for this), but I really am tired of seeing MJ news.

Apparently, using some sort of racial metrics, White people think there should be less MJ and Black people want more. I’m somewhere in between. I’m all for the man resting in peace personally. I’m glad he’s getting this amount of coverage, but as far as his children, regurgitating his well-documented past, or anything unimportant, I’d rather not  hear all of that. I’d like choices as far as the topics I want to hear about, and until I get that choice topically, I’ve decided to just not turn on CNN at all. (No, I don’t watch BET anyways). With the recent deaths of Ed McMahon, Billy Mays, Farrah Fawcett, and Steve McNair, it just goes to show that we all need to tell the people we love just how much we do.

For the final time here, RIP MJ.

Jose, who’s intent on finishing 2 projects this week so he can really take a break …
