Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson died in London on August 30. There are tributes and stories aplenty (my own Jackson story revolves around how and why I never met him -- a funny enough tale that I think he'd have appreciated). The best tributes are at Carolyn Smagalski's site and at the All About Beer site, where publisher Daniel Bradford and editor Julie Johnson Bradford have posted loving sentiments and Michael's last column for the magazine. My sympathies to Carolyn and to everyone else who loved and cherished him.
