Michael Jackson goes straight to hell

Wall Street Journal:

If only [Michael Jackson] had an enormous fortune, a large family, and an extraordinary network of famous friends to help him cope with those problems. Instead of turning to them, he chose to run away from his art, become a drug addict, ruin his personal reputation, dismantle a towering fortune, embark on transparently absurd PR campaigns, and turn himself into a world-class freak show.

Wow -- and I thought I was cynical about Michael Jackson!

When it comes to the "personal responsibility" crowd, I guess "empathy" really is a four-letter word!
