Did the indie receive, "An Open Letter to the Santa Barbara Community" from the owner of Neverland (whose office is in LA)? The LA times published it.

Let's start a rumor & they will come- ka ching long live the king!

The truth is that one of the most influential & wealthiest men (not just the valley but the country) was trying his best to bring the fans to Neverland for a memorial & burial.

He has a ranch in the valley and is a financier/developer who now holds title to Neverland - the agreement made last year was that MJ (and now his heirs) would profit from any future development. Even the governator wanted to try & make this burial happen.

MJ's body in the ground at Neverland would be a good first step towards creating Graceland West although many valley residents say this is not possible because of zoning issues.

So for now at least, money & influence did not have its way.

Read his letter to the community here -

Don't think I ever bought a tape or cd of "children's music". We raised our kids listening to the music we had on in the house. They are now adults and have musical taste spanning decades and genres. They play instruments, perform & write music.

PS I must take issue with the Beatles having simple melodies or arrangements. Not true as anyone who has performed their songs can tell you. However I do agree this music is perfect for the kiddies.

I also disagree with Exinmate's assessment of kids today. I know so many of this age and the vast majority are incredibly bright, creative literate, productive.

The phrase cutting off the nose to spite the face comes to mind when reading about this latest attempt by Mc & co to evade this decision. Now that it is before the Superior Court I hope there is someone who is not afraid to say this is ENOUGH!

PS You'd think someone with her wealth could afford someone to help her look more attractive. Such dowdiness makes her appear much older than her age.

Ashaw,

While I believe that generating more love in this world is a worthy goal, your notion of becoming more loveable is a bit too condependent & disfunctional for my tastes.

This couple is loveable, yet someone treated them with hate.

Your notion is too simplistic. These kinds of acts require consequences, not just someone trying to be more loveable to those who cannot see it because they have hate within themselves.

And as any parent knows, tough love is indeed love that does not try to make the parents more loveable to their children, just the opposite in fact.

This hate act towards these folks is no different than if someone were to scrawl the N word on someone's property because they have black skin.

Several decades later, bigotry has a new form.

LFA, that snipey immature comment on my reading ability is quite ironic since it appears from your response that my point sailed right over your head.

May you find the way to love that your handle proclaims.

It is a mistake to believe that that because Obama won, it was due to liberal voters who might vote against Prop 8. Obama appealed to a wide range of voters. Prop 8 won for the same reason that GWB won a second term (beside the voter fraud) - the campaign played into people's ignorance & fear.

I believe this issue will, hopefully soon, become a moot point, similar to interracial marriage. As more younger voters join the ranks, it will change the cultural viewpoint. As a rule, it is largely the older generation who have grown up in a world where homosexuality was kept in the closet, that seem to have the most misconceptions & fears about such diversity.

There are many studies about who is the most liberal voter in the senate & they don't agree. So there are no 'facts' to be right or wrong about. One of the studies placed Obama at about 10th but a voting record is not the only criteria to judge someone's political orientation.

However that requires more intellectual exertion than some people have in them.

Obama is hardly the most liberal senator. He is quite centrist in many ways. Which is why so many republicans voted for him.

Ah, the fall of the Rome! Civilizations come and go. Not neccessarily good or bad, more due to the cyclical nature of things. Empires overeach, then implode.

The fall of the Roman empire, as was taught in in high school world history (hopefully) was due to many intertwined factors including Christianity, debauchary, public health problems, political corruption, inflation & unemployment, lack of technological invention, military spending, decay of cities, overpopulation (vs resources to sustain).

Finally, during its civil war, Italy was invaded by Germany, the empire was overthrown & Rome was kaput.
