Sorry to see what became of his life toward the end. At one point 15 or 20 years ago I thought he was the best showman in the world. Very, very talented. May he rest in peace and find what he was looking for.

God rest his soul. Quite simply the biggest single act since Elvis Presley

I guess the greedy lawyers and their "clients" will have to go after another vulnerable rich bugger.

I am sorry to see him go at such an age. I too wish him will on his journey.

However, the level of media coverage is a bit much. It is news and needs to be covered, but the coverage is way beyond what is reasonable or necessary.

Regards,
Feltan

The world's most famous pedophile is gone. It's truly a tragedy.

The cable news networks are treating this freak like he was a national hero. It's absolutely stupifying, as well as incomprehensible. His death deserves a mention; not a 24/7 tribute. He was an embarrasment; not an icon.

Agreed, countless children were saved from a future life of shame and confusion today.

The saddest part about all this insanity in the news, is you judge a society by who its heroes are. The fact America idolizes *celebrities* no matter what kind of person they are or were, speaks volumes about the future of our nation. Or lack of same, this country is turning into a giant land of complete morons.

Clearly you both know more than I do. All I saw was proof there are greedy B&%£ards out there.

Let me tell you something - if MY daughter had been abused by a celebrity, I wouldn't be going to court for $20m - I wouldn't sleep 'till the guy was locked up for life or dead - gold diggers, that's all they were. Sold their son out for 20 mil - good family values!

Well said

Insane times we live in, the court jesters have become the voice of reason, popular culture is setting policy and its all covered by the tabloid channels calling themselves nightly news.

Or perhaps two, since his car was possibly huge.

Apart from some obvious differences, does this remind anyone else of the "Princess Di" mania?
