    I watched him on the Discovery TV show and he seemed like a normal person that I would like to hang with. He was doing a job and was very good at it.

    Just think, a person that got as far as he did with no allegations of drug use. Kind of unusual in these times.

    I don't care if he smoked pot, or drank alcohol, or drank coffee. He was very good at his gig and realized what it was in a humble way from what I can tell.

    His enthusiasm reminded me of the late Steve Irwin, only Billy was much louder . Each loved and believed in their work. May we all be so fortunate

    I would not do laundry without oxyclean. Rev, you will soon find out when your wee one starts dribbling blueberries. You will need the stuff.

    One could tell that the smile on the mans face was not fake. And to do that on queue is amazing. Not many people can smile fore reals and show joy and actually mean it at any time they please.

    This story has not gotten any air time. I think they should show some Iran news also. All you see is a whole lot of MJ. I was flipping through the channels and I saw both his reality show and some of his infomercials. I was surprised that none of them gave him any remembrance or a few touching words, or something....

    His death fell between the cracks, so to speak.
