MJ Update, Mon 3/21 (I Can't Resist!)

Jackson -- late to court again today! This time, according to reports, he arrived five minutes late, helped in by a doctor and bodyguard, apparently in pain. He sat and covered his face with tissues, apparently tearing up from the pain. (Oh, the pain of this trial!) Then was escorted out again. Melville conferred with attorneys and court started 45 minutes late. Melville offered no explanation of the delay to the jury. (Gossip says MJ has literally made himself sick with his histrionics over this trial. Also, rumors are that sister Janet is the one who financially bailed him out last week.)

Today's testimony was mainly from the prosecution expert on child abuse supporting the boys' behavior regarding their accounts of the abuse, their loyalty to Jackson, and reluctance to discuss the abuse.

It SHAMES me to know this freak is being beamed all over the world and is feeding others' conceptions of Americans. On the other hand, we the f------ up people have made him who he is, so I guess we deserve it. . ... I know some hillbilly bars in eastern Oklahoma I'd like turn "him" loose in. Egad. Or, "I'll swan," as Mama ER would say.

That is precisely the reason I using this as an exercise to following the legal proceedings so closely. In most other celebrity trials all you get are the sensational headlines (and there have been a lot in this one!) It's hard to sort out perception from reality. I wanted to -- as an exercise -- follow this one through just focusing on what's happening in the courtroom. It's been fun -- and just when it starts to get boring, the client wigs out again. This one has everything!
