Michael Jackson Would Have Been 58 Today

Caterpillars, moths, butterflies, a certain roach, and all creatures great and small,

Michael JacksonI had an out-of-town guess this weekend so am behind in blogging.  Today, I came online to write a post about Michael Jackson.  It seemed like yesterday when the news reported his death.  Then, I read the news about Gene Wilder.  He passed today at the age of 83. When I read the book It’s Always Something by Gilda Radner, it gave me a view about Gene Wilder that I had not known.  Gilda loved him dearly.   I remember the chemistry he had acting along with Richard Pryor and Cleavon Little.   It’s rather strange that on August 29, 2016 as we think about Michael’s birthday, that Gene Wilder would cross over to the other realm.

One of my favorite videos/songs by Michael Jackson is They Don’t Care About Us. It was released in 1996, and today in 2016, I think the song was really saying that Black lives matter.   Michael did two videos for that song.  Here they are.
