All right, let’s get the obvious news out of the way. Michael Jackson is dead. If you’re one of the very very very few people who didn’t know that already, now you do. (And if you didn’t, how the hell is it you’re reading about it on MY site?!)
Moving right along…
One of my old friends from junior high and high school, Kerri-Leigh, has had a rather different take on the whole thing. While everyone else is seeing fit to give their RIPs and condolences to Michael, she is instead giving RIPs and condolences to Navy enlisted and officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty. Unlike Michael, these are people who, other than their shipmates, friends, and family, aren’t known to the public at large and gave their lives in the service.
She’s been posting them on her Twitter, which you can find here. Please take a minute to read through the list; while these are not celebrities, they are people with friends and family who died in the service of this country, and do deserve be remembered.
