It is hard to believe that Michael Jackson has died. While I haven't paid much attention to him for quite some time, he was one of my favorites in the 80's. Since Jackson's death dominated the news, Vera was curious about him. I found some old videos on Youtube to show my almost five-year old daughter how Michael Jackson did the moonwalk to the music of Billie Jean. After watching for a few minutes, she lost interest. I suppose this is some sort of generation gap. I was five years old when Elvis Presley died in 1977 and I probably reacted the same way. While every generation has its own "king", it is hard to imagine that there will be another one like Michael Jackson.
