No. 1 on David Letterman's Top 10 list of "Things Overheard During the Michael Jackson Verdict" last night: "Another case of a white guy getting preferential treatment."
Michael Jackson’s Website groups his not guilty verdict with such historic events as "Martin Luther King is born," "The Berlin Wall falls," and "Nelson Mandela is freed." NOTE: the site keeps crashing, no doubt from the sheer insane volume of traffic it’s getting today.

Personally, I have to agree with the juror who said Michael may not be guilty of the crimes he is currently charged with (or at least the prosecution didn't make the case that he was), but I don't think he is altogether innocent.
Whatever. Thank God for the end of this particular media spectacle. Isn't there a war going on somewhere? And what's going on with the economy?
