Ms. Barb Ickes believes law enforcement agencies would be easier on top-of-the-pops pederast Michael Jackson if he were a priest.

Maybe, maybe not.

From my own perspective, I'm struck by how much easier Michael Jackson is on us than are our home-grown celebrators of diversity. We don't have to share Jackson's taste in mood music an hour a week.
