Michael Jackson Dead

June 26th, 2009 by Matt

I just turned on the news and saw that Michael Jackson died a few hours ago, aged 50, apparently from cardiac arrest; the Herald has the story, Pop Star Michael Jackson Dies.

I saw him in concert when he came to New Zealand in 1996. Whatever one can say about his personal life, the man was brilliant at his day job.

UPDATE: Contra Celsum reproduces this excellent obituary by Andrew Sullivan.
