Michael Jackson dead

Word has just trickled in that Michael Jackson was found unconscious at his Bel Air mansion shortly after noon today, and that he was pronounced dead about 20 minutes ago.

Earlier today, fashion icon Farrah Fawcett passed away - and now Jacko, one of the greatest names in pop music, has died at only 50.

I don't even know what to say - I never was much of a Jacko fan but certainly listened to him more than I cared for in the 1980s and into the 1990s. His music is part of many people's memories from the era, and he will certainly be missed.
