Never Can Say Goodbye

July 7 -  Well, that was incredibly sad.  Like so many others, I watched Michael Jackson's public memorial service this afternoon.  I had intended to view the event with detached, almost scholarly interest, but I was crying like a baby by the first shaky lines of Mariah Carey's "I'll Be There."  Look, I grew up with The Jackson 5, was a teenager for Thriller, and have been an active observer of Pop Culture since college.  For better or worse, Michael Jackson meant something to me.  I don't know exactly what, but it was definitely something.  Of course, I've been to way too many funerals recently, so that didn't help.  Hmm.  So...I was trying to get back to wrapping up my Pete's Hamburgers 100th Anniversary report, but I just couldn't (partly because YouTube was undergoing service, so I couldn't upload my awesome Pete's videos!).  Now I've got a cartooning lecture/workshop in a few hours, so I'm going to bail tonight as well, but I will get back to it later, I promise ('cause I know you've been on pins and needles waiting for it).  For now I'll leave you with your Comic Book Father Character of The Day - Fred Andrews!
