    I again see the incorrect usage of the term "pedophile." As noted, pedophilia is a mental disorder wherein an individual experiences a prolonged sexual attraction to prepubescent children. It has no necessary relation to specific behaviors, and cannot be determined by a "conviction."

    Re: Obama spokesman says president believes Michael Jackson was a musical icon

    I think what we forget here, when we think of entertainers being weird, is that their goal is to sell themselves. Michael Jackson was raised to believe since he was 5-years old that he was worth something when he sold records. Being from the Motown years he was taught that not only talent sold records, but also publicity. Any kind of publicity would do. The public is much more interested in the weird than we are the normal. Jackson was a genius when it came to this. I have read many interviews with people who met Jackson and said they were surprised at how normal he really was.

    An entertainer's public image can be far from the real person.

    Regarding the accusations of child molestation, we do not know what really happened. None of us can say it is true for sure, none of us can say it is not true for sure. Only the actual people involved can make one of those statements with certainty.

    What gets me about this whole thing with Obama is how he only took less than a day to comment on Michael Jackson, yet on the important government issues, he waits it out. His priorities seem out of order.

    Not sure I understand your reasoning here. It's not like he would need to put much thought into a statement about Michael Jackson. All he did was state the obvious. Done.

    I don't want him rushing on matters of high government importance. I would prefer he take his time, where reasonable, and provide us with an intelligently thought out comment.
    *insert profound statement here*

    I think he has a higher responsibility to deal with government issues, and those things do require a more thought-out statement, but he waits too long, IMO.

    Although what you say is true, there is some question as to whether Michael Jackson was afflicted with this condition.

    I think it's apparent what condition he was afflicted by in that Stan Katz determined that he "[didn't] fit the profile of a pedophile" and was more akin to a "regressed ten year old" after a psychological examination.
