I never understood Michael Jackson.
But neither did anybody else.
It's just one reason why we're seeing endless stories about him. It's not that we knew so much; it's that we understood little.
I enjoyed his music when he was young, especially in 1972 when he recorded 'Ben.' I liked the song and it didn't matter to me that Jackson was singing about a rat.
Today, everyone is at odds about Jackson and his life from the typical man on the street to our lawmakers.
