It's All About The Benjamins, Baby

Well, I can't say that I am surprised at all ... Michael Jackson was found not guilty on all 10 charges against him:

This is a picture of Jacko as he was leaving the courthouse ... he doesn't look too happy, does he?

Everyone has their opinion, and the jury's opinion is the only one that matters at all, but for what it's worth I do believe that he is guilty of some wrongdoing. At the very least I was hoping that he would get some sort of help for his strange behavior. Calling your baby "blanket" and waving him over a balcony is strange behavior. If these charges had been made against any "normal" (i.e. not rich) person I honestly believe they would have been convicted a long time ago.

Incidentally, I was at the mall with my parents when the verdict was handed down ... there was a TV in the middle of the courtyard and a whole slew of people were all huddled around the TV watching in disbelief:

Shock was, apparently, a lot of people's reactions.

Oh well -- this is the legal system. And we all move on ...
