Jesse Jackson: Family wants 2nd autopsy

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Michael Jackson’s family wants a private autopsy of the pop icon because of unanswered questions about how he died and the doctor who was with him, the Rev. Jesse Jackson said Saturday.

“It’s abnormal,” he told The Associated Press from Chicago a day after visiting the Jackson family. “We don’t know what happened. Was he injected and with what? All reasonable doubt should be addressed.”

If they’re willing to pay, (and they can certainly afford it) they can have as many autopsies as they want.

But everyone should have known that he was not well. He had been really pale lately

Oh Shit!!! Is There Anyplace Left To Escape To?

US House passes historic climate change bill

The US House of Representatives have narrowly passed historic legislation to cut pollution blamed for global warming, handing President Barack Obama a major, hard-fought victory.

After hours of bitter debate, lawmakers voted 219-212 to put the US economy under a “cap-and-trade” system for managing carbon emissions in a move its backers said would create jobs and restore shaky US leadership on climate change.

“Just remember these four words for what this legislation means — jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs. Let’s vote for jobs,” Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi exhorted her colleagues minutes before the vote.

Republican House Minority Leader John Boehner warned the measure would send energy costs skyrocketing and denounced it as “the biggest job-killing bill that has ever been on the floor of the House.”

Time will tell. But if Boehner is correct and Pelosi is not, how will we be able to correct it?

I think you will be able to date the swift decline in the American standard of living to this vote.
