    There is no diagnosis that fits the profile of a "regressed 10 year old". Jackson had no developmental disabilities. If he did, he would be unable to function as he did. I didn't know the man and do not know what his actual symptoms were. However, Katz's determination seems fairly inconclusive and somewhat sensationalized. I would like to see the data before making a determination. I would imagine there was some sort of OCD going on, but again, it is hard to tell what really was happening.

    If you didn't know his actual symptoms, it doesn't seem sound to declare that he "had no developmental disabilities." I don't believe that public perception of his activities is sufficient for determination of the manner in which he actually "functioned."

    I don't agree. His ability to function was certainly sufficient to not have a developmental disability. He lived independently; he was self-sufficient economically; he presented himself, appropriately, verbally, and responded, appropriately, verbally; he was able to perform appropriate self care. I've worked with plenty who have this diagnosis. Jackson's abilities far exceeded what someone with DD would be able to do. He had some sort of psychological ailment, but DD wasn't it.

    That was uncalled for.

    He did later, but I am certain you know this. In your defense it was after your post.

    Yea because Michael Jackson dying is just another reason to attack the president politically for a comment that was true no less.

    I have my opinion on jackson. it stands.

    There is enough here for me to draw my own conclusion, thanks.


    Actually what is uncalled for is the thousands being murdered in Iran and I can't turn a channel to hear about anything other than plasticman.

    It wasn't Obama setting up a press conference for MJ, it was a spokesman repeating what could very well have been an offhand comment by Obama. It's not like the president was taking any time of his own to comment on Jackson's death; that's why he has spokespeople. It can't be a screwy priority if it never was a priority in the first place.

    Actually, he did take time to write the Jackson family a personal note.

    President Barack Obama has written a note to Michael Jackson's family, a top White House adviser said today.

    David Axelrod says Obama expressed his condolences to the Jacksons. He said Obama saw the pop star as a spectacular performer whose life had sad and tragic aspects.

    It doesn't really matter to me. I would expect an American president to say something irt the passing of an American icon. Just pointing out that Obama did in fact take the time to make an expression.

    Since when did we become the policemen of the world? We are not going to send in troops or anything like that. So to the American people it is sad, but it is another sovereign nation, we have no business policing the world. And you say you are a libertarian?

    I am sorry man as much as I agree with you most of the time, I see this as nothing but a cheap shot.

    And this is Obama's fault how?

    This is nothing to admonish the president over.
