Apparently Michael Jackson was rushed to an Los Angeles hospital this afternoon. By the time he arrived at the hospital he was in a coma and was pronounced dead shortly after. I am not aware of the exact COD.
While I have not been a fan of Michael Jackson since I was about 8, he was almost as important to me as the Cubs back in the mid 80's. I believe he was getting ready for a final 50-show tour (although I think they were all going to be heald in the same arena). He was 50 years old when he died.
