    I liked seeing on CNN's ticker "9 killed in Baghdad as tensions flare" under the coverage.

    Of course you aren't the only one. Whenever some single person dies, there is always at least one person in every thread on the subject on the internet who likes to express how its just one person, he's no different from anyone else, way more people die every day, blah blah blah I don't care about celebrities, etc. etc. etc.

    Because his music touched your soul. Don't get it? Don't yell at us.

    Celebrities deaths are bigger tragedies because celebrities touch more poeple's lives. DUH!

    The only reason his death is sad is because his life was sad and he never got a chance to fix it.

    And though you fight to stay alive
    Your body starts to shiver

    My heart winched when I heard James Brown died a year or 2 back.

    My heart now plummets with the death of Michael =(

    Why are we losing so many musical personalities? =/

    This is proof however that entertainment and the arts have more of an impact on people then "real" events and tragedies. Funny how that all works.
