All quiet on the Michael Jackson front.

Sadly, I didn't really have anything to add to the 4 or 5 million words written since last Thursday. I wasn't moved in any direction, sad or happy. However, I have been reading a lot of material about him-pro and con-and I have finally found something I think is the most astute piece of MJ writing out there right now. It comes from an online acquaintance, Ben Lazar, who runs the music blog A Deep Shade of Soul. Click on over and give it a read. I think you'll find, as I did, that it provides the right amount of analysis and closure to a phenomenon that had swollen all out of proportion since MJ's death on the 25th. Don't take my word for it, go read Ben's piece, The Ecstasy of Michael Jackson, here.

Why can't I find writers like him for my literary agency?
