The emperor Claudius has been attributed with saying the above. I think he would find that his phrase would be entirely apposite today, in respect of the goings on in the periphery of the Michael Jackson trial.
Yesterday, I noted that another person had come forward claiming abuse by Jackson some years earlier. The credibility of this person's story is, to put it mildly, somewhat suspect.
The individual is, by all accounts, undergoing psychiatric treatment in the hands of Carole Lieberman. Her website can be viewed here Carole Lieberman.
I understand that she has worked on Jackson related "tabloid" issues before. She has also raised a complaint with Child Protective Services about Michael Jackson dangling his baby outside of a hotel window.
I wonder what these people would do without the celebrities they seem to feed off?
