OP It's the fact he just died... I mean a legacy has died today. Patrick Swayze is dying, we know, so we can accept that he is going to go. But Michael just dropped dead. No warnings. A whole history of music..... is exactly that... history. So sad.

The guy was a freak - in that he never had a dog's chance of normality. What a fouled up family.
He never had to grow up, his perspectives were so twisted and convoluted, he could never fully trust anyone around him - much like Elvis in that respect - as he never knew who liked him for HIM, or pretended to in order that he may be able to do something for them.
All that success has a price - a very high price.
A miserable, displaced soul that can maybe now find some peace.
I'm already tired of hearing about it.

Seeing as how many people are so materialistic today they most likely never even think about death let alone talk about it to others. They are so obsessed with their own lives they can't see the broad scheme of things (reality). And they already have their minds made up about everything. Death is not in the near future for them and they just think of it (if ever they do happen to think of it) as an end or make up a delusion about what they believe will happen so they choose comfort over truth and freedom. They choose to believe in something that they really have no basis for so that they won't have to think about it anymore and that is why they can't talk about it.
