I am fascinated by our culture and its fascination with celebrity. Yesterday was a great example.
So as the verdict is rendered by the jury in the case against Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson fans outside the courthouse start cheering.
I am not sure why to cheer? Does a guilty verdict change the fact the Mr. Jackson is still dead? Does the verdict change the fact that Mr. Jackson sounds like he was really into several different types of drugs? Mr. Murray will only spend short time in jail, and will be back on the streets sooner, rather than later.
Does any of these results give anyone, especially fans anything to cheer about?
