Update on Michael Jackson, Elvis, and Professional Hangers On

  I wrote this column the day after Michael Jackson died.  In light of today's news, it seems really on target.

Also, here"s a fascinating blog piece from Louisville Attorney Hans Poppe on why a wrong death or medical malpractice case against Jackson's doctor may be worthless.   Poppe has a take that I have not seen anywhere else.
