Eccentric is the word - if the individual has money. Or in the UK when the family may have one time had money.

Anyone else as eccentric as sharing their bed and showering with very young boys - would have been dealt with - a long time ago.

They won't be able to call the chimpanzee because they would have to find a look-like actor to play the part on the daily TV re-enactment...Or a chimp to say the lines.......

This show is interesting to watch. Watching the actor playing the high-powered defence cross-examining the actor playing the brother of the boy who claims to have been abused - reminds me of a Monty Python sketch where big John Cleese has a boxing match with a sweet little girl dressed in her party frock. He knocks her all around the ring and no one seems to see or object to the fact that this is no contest and an obvious mis-match.......

When the actor playing the boy hinself (the main witness against Michael Jackson) is cross-examined - I suspect this mis-match is going to be even more pronounced.

I can't help thinking that - whether it was by Michael Jackson or by his parents exposing him to this possibility and no matter how unreliable these parents may appear and whatever their motives - that there is little doubt that this child has been abused - and this court process is only adding to this.....

Although not in the same light as a chimp testifying, we present evidence all the time in the form of animal testimony when our search animals find drugs and explosives.

Let him testify. They're calling it a circus and I've had enough of my share of the clowns. Bring on the animals!

From Capitol Steps (by memory)

I am a David Duke supporter
He says his Nazi days are gone
Now once again he's at J C Penney's
Seems they've got a giant white sale on.

He went to see a plastic surgeon
To give his face an aryan trim
Now Michael Jackson's gone Anglo Saxon
Duke wants to be more white than him

Stand By Your Klan...

I'm wondering if there is a cultural difference here.

In England you can be pretty weird but as long as you don't hurt anybody, they not only leave you alone, they give you some credit.

Here in America if you are weird yet harmless, you are also perceived to be vulnerable and sooner or later someone tries to take advantage of that and there is no societal sense of 'fairplay' to bar that sort of activity.

I'm not saying Jackson is necessarily that sort of weirdo, but he seems to be harming himself more than anyone else and the caliber of his accusers is to say the least, suspect.

Not to mention the sleaze-fest feeding frenzy.

There's a hidden truth inherent in the very concept of an infinite number of monkeys. The truth is revealed by the collision and cognitive dissonance between "infinity" and "monkeys" who usually get lost above three when counting.

But I do not know what the truth is.

Of course, this is what a monkey might be capable of, according to The Infinite Monkey Protocol Suite

"This memo describes a protocol suite which supports an infinite number of monkeys that sit at an infinite number of typewriters in order to determine when they have either produced the entire works of William Shakespeare or a good television show"

In the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, the Infinite Improbability Drive caused just that.

Arthur Dent: "Ford! There's an infinite number of monkeys outside who want to talk to us about this script for Hamlet they've worked out."

It won't be the first time that an attempt has been made to turn a court of law into a circus.........

A number of people think the whole case is a distraction and a waste of time and energy. I was making the point that behind the circus element - remains a serious issue of the abuse of children and the protection of children (and animals) from that abuse. Agencies involved in this - do take it seriously.

I am not sure if Michael Jackson is guilty of these particular charges - or if this procedure will ever be able to establish this either way. But that is the procedure.

Whether Michael Jackson is mentally fit to be facing criminal charges is debatable, I think - but if he is fit enough to make money for record companies etc and be in sole charge of three (of his own) children - perhaps he is? This perhaps needs to be established - but this is not the defence being offered.

Shambles,

They said the same thing about G.W. prior to invading Iraq. Turns out most of what he knew wasn't real. MJ isn't guilty until proven innocent. There's a principal involved here. It's OK for the defense to go around saying he's innocent. That's their job. The prosecution should not be "acting" like he's guilty. That's for a jury to decide. That's the way the American justice system is supposed to work.

Now don't get me wrong. I'm not defending MJ. He creeps me out. We ought to start a class action suit against everyone that puts his picture on the news for emotional damage for looking at him.

Many of those who are involved in the protection of children from abuse would view this case differently from the way most of us do.   

Those who abuse children and destroy the trust that many children still have in the good intentions that most adults have towards them - do not just abuse children on the few occasions that appear in court cases. They tend to abuse children over a long period but where there is usually little evidence that is strong enough to go to ever risk going to court with.

If you think that some members of the prosecution act as if the case against Michael Jackson was proven - it is probably because they are aware of information aand evidence about other abuses of children - that will never find its way to court. I suspect that they wish that some of the curent witnesses were not so easy for a deterimined defence to place doubt upon - and that the testimony of others could be produced - but that is just the process we have.......
