05/13/2005: From the "News I really didn't need to know department"....
and yes, I know I'm a day behind on this:
Between last night's tawdry ABC Prime Time Live special chronicling Michael Jackson's "special friendships" with a series of young boys over the years (including former child stars Corey Feldman and Macaulay Culkin); the far more thoughtful documentary Michael Jackson's Secret Childhood, airing throughout the month on VH1; and today's release of 1,903 pages of testimony from last year's grand jury proceedings on the Smoking Gun Web site, we're getting into a weird cultural area, Jackson-wise. Not that our relationship to the pop star was ever what you'd call wholesome, but I, for one, never thought I'd be sipping my morning coffee while reading about Michael Jackson's striped penis. According to a detective who investigated the 1993 molestation case that Jackson settled out of court, the singer's private parts are easily identifiable because of the "brown circles," a result of twice-weekly skin bleaching, that make his world-famous wing-wang resemble a "barber's pole."I don't have anything to say; I'm sort of captivated with the rhythm of muttering "Jackson's johnson..." to myself a number of times fast.
