Jackson shows up for court in jammies… Hopefully they were his own

Yesterday, I ran across and article which was headlined, “Insiders fear Jackson will commit suicide.” How could you tell? Has he been acting weird or something? Say it ain’t so!

Jackson was over an hour late for court, citing a “bad back”– An injury with a cause on which I’m hesitant to speculate. Jackson was still in his pajama bottoms when he arrived at court.

The judge had threatened to revoke his $3 million bail and throw him in the clink if he was late. Well, Jackson was late and… nothing happened. It’s not a “the rich can get away with anything” situation either. If he were Ken Lay or Martha Stewart, it’d be jail time. No, Michael Jackson is a member of the “super famous”, and they can get away with almost anything… except perhaps molestation.

Speaking of rich, Michael may be anything but. Some say Jackson is broke. To paraphrase the late Senator Everett Dirksen, “$20 million to this boy’s family, and $20 million to that boy’s family, and pretty soon you’re talking serious money.”

Word is Jackson may even be behind on the payroll at the Neverland Ranch. Even the llamas are threatening to walk. Down to his last few bucks, if Jackson manages to escape these charges, we may see a money making reunion tour with his family, with the group name slightly changed to reflect current times: “The Jackson $5”.
