Michael Jackson, RIP

Michael Jackson died, apparently of a heart issue, in Los Angeles this afternoon, at the age of 50.

There are a lot of crass jokes that can be made, and I've even made some of them -- starting with, "Hey, at least he's already embalmed!" -- but ultimately, we should be mourning the loss of a great American singer who gave us some amazing music over the years, both with the Jackson 5 and on his own (Thriller still remains one of the great albums of all time), before he got all weird.

And 50 is too fucking young to die.
