Tomorrow night you can do the same!
The Times says that “A tribute and candlelight vigil in honor of pop icon Michael Jackson will be at 8 p.m. Saturday underneath the Texas Sreet Bridge near Salt Grass Steakhouse at Louisiana Boardwalk in Bossier City.
“He touched millions across the world with his music… And I just wanted to do something that would spark unity because that’s what he was all about,” said event coordinator James “Eskuire” Haggard, who organized the event.”
He did touch some people
In the 90’s, Jackson was sued on behalf of a 13 year old boy whom he had ‘touched’ – but not with his music.
"Defendant Michael Jackson, with the intent to cause a harmful or offensive contact with an intimate part of plaintiff, repeatedly committed sexual battery upon plaintiff by having sexually offensive contacts with the plaintiff. These sexually offensive contacts include but are not limited to defendant Michael Jackson orally copulating plaintiff, defendant Michael Jackson masturbating plaintiff, defendant Michael Jackson eating the semen of plaintiff, and defendant Michael Jackson having plaintiff fondle and manipulate the breasts and nipples of defendant Michael Jackson while defendant Michael Jackson would masturbate.
Jackson settled the suit for over $15,000,000. The statement by the victim stated that Jackson named several other youngsters with whom he had sexual contact.

Don't let all the diddling little boys and eating their semen stop you from getting on your feelgood tribute to the 'king of pop'.
Beat it down to the boardwalk for a ‘tribute and candlelight vigil’ to honor him.
