LA Times confirms it (on twitter!) LATimes: Michael Jackson pronounced dead by doctors after arriving at hospital in deep coma, city + law enforcement sources say. http://bit.ly/1WsqG (21 minutes ago from web)

And an attorney at my firm just sent out the TMZ link. Email subject line was: Michael Jackson Dies, Email body contents:

OMG!

Wouldn't be funny if this was an associate, but this is a mid-40's very dignified telecommunications lawyer. You know those Dos Equis commercials for "the most interesting man in the world?" This lawyer looks like his brother. I snorfled muchly.

I feel sorry for the fact that Fara Fawcett's death will be so overshadowed by MJ's

That said, though i was never an MJ fan - save for some of his early work - I am shocked to hear of his death. It feels somewhat surreal

So many people wanted to verify the early reports of Jackson's death that the computers running Google's news section interpreted the fusillade of "Michael Jackson" requests as an automated attack for about half an hour Thursday evening.

they're equating Michael's death to JFK's.. like "where were you when..."

in the time after JFK was shot in Dallas.. my parents were asked that question.. in Fort Bliss..

Nah. More like Elvis than JFK. And in 25 years when everyone forgets most of MJ's squickiness they'll make a three-pack of Pez dispensers to honor him. The interesting thing is that none of the Pez will even slightly resemble each other.

I'm sorry - I know I'm a heartless, callous bastard, but when I heard of his death I just went "Meh" and went to read the editorial comics section at yahoo. His death doesn't come near JFK, 9-11, Challenger/Columbia shuttle disasters, or even the person killed in an auto accident I passed on my way to work a while back as a "where were you when" type moment...

You are a Leprechaun. I'm not even sure what you are. Whiskey-soaked reports from your baffling Isle of Ire raise more questions than they answer. Are you a dwarf? Where's your pickax? If you're an elf, why don't you cobble? You'd think with all your gold, you could invest in some land, perhaps a title, and improve your station. Instead, you hide it in meteorologically-determined locations. You're getting killed on inflation, little friend!

I actually settled down, they turned their attention on the BBC Director General. And then Paul Gamboccini came on and was sensible about Jackson and Farrah Fawcett.

Ok, seriously, why is the Beeb playing Thriller for the start of items? That is NOT IN GOOD TASTE people!

i told one of my friends at work a month or so ago that the o2 gigs would never happen ...

MJ was pretty popular in Korea - all the stars and dancers there are well into copying his dance moves
so i am expecting a slew of tribute dance programs ....
