It's Raining Outside

Finally winter has arrived. At least the garden might now stop looking like, and having the consistancy of, a dust bowl. It needs a good soaking, but then so do the crops out on the plains.

Today's talk surrounds the Jackson trial and his 'not guilty' verdict. Personally I don't know if he did it or not, but for the time being the courts have said he didn't do anyhting wrong and that's that. What bothers me the most about the whole thing is the fact that no-one has confronted the parents of the children that Jackson supposedly molested. Odd indeed.

Since the early 1990s Jackson has had a cloud hanging over him. The first time he was accused of child molestation he didn't go to trial - fair enough really as the family put the story on the auction block and Jackson bid the most amount of money. He with the deepest pockets, wins. Now after that happened, and the resulting press, you'd think that the last thing you'd do is allow your children to virtually move into Neverland and sleep in the same bed as the man.

I mean, what the heck?? I'd not be allowing my kids to sleep in ANY adults bed, let alone with a weirdo like Jackson, yet the parents of these children not only allowed it, they encouraged it and took money in return. That's right - the parents were PAID to let their kids sleep with Jackson.

I have to wonder - did the right person go on trial? You can throw as many stones at Jackson as you want, but there are some HUGE boulders that need to be thrown at the parents who for all intensive purposes knowingly sold their children to a potential paedaphile.
