Or perhaps the reason is one was a minor actor (albeit "nice") and the other was one of the three most influential popular musicians of the 2nd half of the 20th century (Elvis & the Beatles being the others). Whether or not you like his legacy M.J.'s is all over our current music scene - videos, costumes, personas, on and off stage. I'll admit his bizarre personal life adds to the media hype, but even without that, and I mean no disrespect to F.F., M.J.'s just a much more significant person in the history of popular culture.

I'd take you more seriously if you weren't anonymous. What's the fear, here? Either way, nobody deserves this level of attention. I'd be bugged if it was the other way around, too.

The Cast

  • Wife
    Formerly GF. Self-explanatory, I think.
  • S & B
    Our former next-door neighbors. Their given names begin with neither S nor B, although the names that everyone calls them do begin with S and B. Go figure.
  • Wee One
    Wife's daughter, who is almost eighteen years old. An artist and aspiring actress who spends an inordinate amount of time getting physical therapy. She'll be starting college in the fall. We'll be in debtor's prison by the spring.
  • Daughter
    My 25-year-old daughter, a college graduate from SUNY New Paltz and working in the world of theater, making props. Currently her work can be seen on the campus of the University of North Carolina in Durham, with the Playmakers.
