Young man and women in lovers lane with a trooper - joke

A Trooper is making his regular patrol when he spots a car parked in an out of the way 'Lovers lane'.

When he carefully approaches the car to get a closer look, he sees a young man behind the wheel, reading a computer magazine. He immediately notices a young woman in the rear seat, filing her fingernails.

Puzzled by this surprising situation, the trooper walks to the car and gently raps on the driver's window.

The young man lowers his window "Uh, yes, Officer?"

The trooper asks: "What are you doing?"

The young man says: "Well, Officer, I'm reading a magazine."

Pointing towards the young woman in the back seat the trooper says: "And her, what is she doing?"

The young man shrugs: "Sir, I believe she's filing her fingernails."

Now, the trooper is totally confused. A young couple, alone, in a car, at night in a lover's lane, and nothing obscene is happening!

The trooper asks: "What's your age, young man?"

The young man says: "I'm 22, sir."

The trooper asks: "'And her...what's her age?"

The young man looks at his watch and replies: "'She'll be 18 in 11 minutes."

Elizabeth listened with delight to the happy, though modest hopes which Jane entertained of Bingley's regard, and said all in her power to heighten her confidence in it. On their being joined by Mr. Bingley himself, Elizabeth withdrew to Miss Lucas; to whose inquiry after the pleasantness of her last partner she had scarcely replied, before Mr. Collins came up to them and told her with great exultation that he had just been so fortunate as to make a most important discovery. "I have found out," said he, "by a singular accident, that there is now in the room a near relation of my patroness. I happened to overhear the gentleman himself mentioning to the young lady who does the honours of this house the names of his cousin Miss De Bourgh, and of her mother Lady Catherine. How wonderfully these sort of things occur! Who would have thought of my meeting with-perhaps-anephew of Lady Catherine de Bourgh in this assembly!-I am most thankful that the discovery is made in time for me to pay my respects to him, which I am now going to do, and trust he will excuse my not having done it before.

She not unfrequently stopped at the parsonage, and had a few minutes' conversation with Charlotte, but was scarcely ever prevailed on to get out. Very few days passed in which Mr. Collins did not walk to Rosings, and not many in which his wife didnot think it necessary to go likewise; and till Elizabeth recollected that there might be other family livings to be disposed of, she could not understand the sacrifice of so many hours. Now and then, they were honoured with a call from her Ladyship, and nothing escaped her observation that was passing in the room during these visits. She examined into their employment, looked at their work, and advised them to do it differently; found fault with the arrangement of the furniture, or detected the housemaid in negligence; and if she accepted any refreshment, seemed to do it only for the sake of finding out that Mrs. Collins's joints of meat were too large for her family. Elizabeth soon perceived that though this great lady was not in the commission of the peace for the county, she was a most active magistrate in her own parish, the minutest concerns of which were carried to her by Mr.

Pope Benedict's Drives the Limo - joke

After getting all of Pope Benedict's luggage loaded into the limo, (and he doesn't travel light), the driver notices the Pope is still standing on the curb.

'Excuse me, Your Holiness,' says the driver, 'Would you please take your seat so we can leave?'

'Well, to tell you the truth,' says the Pope, 'they never let me drive at the Vatican when I was a cardinal, and I'd really like to drive today.'

'I'm sorry, Your Holiness, but I cannot let you do that. I'd lose my job! What if something should happen?'protests the driver, wishing he'd never gone to work that morning.

'Who's going to tell?' says the Pope with a smile.

Reluctantly, the driver gets in the back as the Pope climbs in behind the wheel.

The driver quickly regrets his decision when, after exiting the airport, the Pontiff floors it, accelerating the limo to 205 kph. (Remember, the Pope is German.)

'Please slow down, Your Holiness!' pleads the worried driver, but the Pope keeps the pedal to the metal until they hear sirens.

'Oh, dear God, I'm going to lose my license -- and my job!' moans the driver.

The Pope pulls over and rolls down the window as the cop approaches, but the cop takes one look at him, goes back to his motorcycle, and gets on the radio.

'I need to talk to the Chief,' he says to the dispatcher.

The Chief gets on the radio and the cop tells him that he's stopped a limo going 205 kph.

'So bust him,' says the Chief.

'I don't think we want to do that, he's really important,' said the cop.

The Chief exclaimed,' All the more reason!'

'No, I mean really important,' said the cop with a bit of persistence.

The Chief then asked, 'Who do you have there, the mayor?'

Cop: 'Bigger.'
Chief: 'A senator?'
Cop: 'Bigger.'
Chief: 'The Prime Minister?'
Cop: 'Bigger.'

'Well,' said the Chief, 'who is it?'

Cop: 'I think it's God!'

The Chief is even more puzzled and curious, 'What makes you think it's God?'

Cop: "His chauffeur is the Pope!"

Give me a sense of humor, Lord, Give me the grace to see a joke, To get some humor out of life, And pass it on to other folks.

Stroke Has a New Indicator Besides S.T.R. - the Tongue

Stroke has a new indicator

They say if you email this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along?

Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue

I will continue to forward this every time it comes around!

STROKE: Remember the 1st Three Letters..... S. T. R.

STROKE IDENTIFICATION:

During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ...she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.

Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 pm Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

It only takes a minute to read this.

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.


RECOGNIZING A STROKE
Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR. Read and Learn!

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

S *Ask the individual to SMILE.
T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)

(i.e. It is sunny out today.)
R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue (Not Deemed accurate based upon subjective amount of indication)

NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.

A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.

I have done my part. Will you?

2 beggars on a street in Rome, 1 with a cross, 1 with a star of David - joke

2 beggars are sitting side by side on a street in Rome, One has a Cross in front of him; the other one is holding the Star of David. Many people go by, look at both beggars, but only put money into the hat of the beggar sitting behind the Cross.

A priest comes by. He stops to observe the throngs of people giving money to the beggar who holds the Cross, but none give to the beggar holding the Star of David.

Finally, the priest goes over to the beggar behind the Star of David and says,"My poor fellow, don't you understand? Italy is a Catholic country; this city is the seat of Catholicism. People aren't going to give you money if you sit there with a Star of David in front of you, especially when you're sitting beside a beggar who is holding a Cross. In fact, they would probably give more money to him just out of spite." Then the priest walked on.

The beggar behind the 'Star of David' turned to the beggar with the Cross and said, "Moishe, look who's trying to teach the Goldstein brothers about marketing."

Golf at 80 with a 90-year-old companion - joke

Arthur is 80 years old. He's played golf every day since his retirement 20 years ago.

One day he arrives home looking downcast. "That's it," he tells his wife, "I'm giving up golf. My eyesight has got so bad, once I've hit the ball, I can't see where it went."

His wife sympathizes. As they sit down she says, "Why don't you take my brother with you, and give it one more try?"

"That's no good," sighs Arthur. "Your brother is 90 years old. He can't help."

"He may be a 90," says the wife, "but his eyesight is perfect."

So the next day Arthur heads off to the golf course with his brother-in-law. He tees up, takes an almighty swing and squints down the fairway.

He turns to the brother-in-law, "Did you see the ball?"

"Of course I did," says the brother-in-law, "I have perfect eyesight."

"Where did it go?" asks Arthur.

"I don't remember."

Ferrari GTO and and Elderly man on a Moped Joke

An elderly man on a Moped, looking about 90 years old, pulls up next to a doctor at a street light.

The old man looks over at the sleek shiny car and asks, "What kind of car ya got there, sonny?"

The doctor replies, "A Ferrari GTO. It cost half a million dollars!"

"That's a lot of money," says the old man.

"Why does it cost so much?"

"Because this car can do up to 220 miles an hour!" states the doctor proudly.

The Moped driver asks, "Mind if I take a look inside?"

"No problem," replies the doctor. So the old man pokes his head in the window and looks around. Then, sitting back on his Moped, the old man says, "That's a pretty nice car, all right.... but I'll stick with my Moped!"

Just then the light changes, so the doctor decides to show the old man just what his car can do. He floors it, and within 30 seconds the speedometer reads 150 mph.

Suddenly, he notices a dot in his rear view mirror. It seems to be getting closer! He slows down to see what it could be and suddenly WHOOOOSSSHHH! Something whips by him going much faster!

"What on earth could be going faster than my Ferrari?" the doctor asks himself. He presses harder on the accelerator and takes the Ferrari up to 180 mph. Then, up ahead of him, he sees that it's the old man on the Moped!

Amazed that the Moped could pass his Ferrari, he gives it more gas and passes the Moped at 200 mph and he's feeling pretty good until he looks in his mirror and sees the old man gaining on him AGAIN!

Astounded by the speed of this old guy, he floors the gas pedal and takes the Ferrari all the way up to 220 mph.

Not ten seconds later, he sees the Moped bearing down on him again! The Ferrari is flat out, and there's nothing he can do!

Suddenly, the Moped plows into the back of his Ferrari, demolishing the rear end.

The doctor stops and jumps out and unbelievably the old man is still alive. He runs up to the banged-up old guy and says, "I'm a doctor.... Is there anything I can do for you ?"

The old man whispers, "Unhook my suspenders from your side view mirror!"

King of Pop News About Michael Jackson

The king of pop died June 25th 2009 from an apparent heart attack.

Rumors were swirling at the time that it was due to prescription drug abuse and his anorexia while other rumors say he died from poising because he ate some bad 12 year old nuts

Today as the final chapter on the King of Pop closes, Michael Jackson's doctor Dr. Conrad Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter after a trial that proved he was a reckless caregiver who administered a lethal dose of a powerful anesthetic propofol that killed the king of pop.

Dr. Conrad Murray will probably lose his medical license and faces up to 4 years in jail. He was taken from the courtroom in handcuffs and will be sentenced on Nov. 29.

More King Of Pop News about Michael Jackson from December 2003

December 1st 2003. Michael Jackson had broken all the records with his "Thriller" album. Many of his albums once generated tens of millions of dollars in sales, and he has made a fortune in buying the rights in popular songs after taking advance from formal Beatle Sir Paul McCartney.

Sir Paul has publicly stated that he regretted the advice he gave to Michael as the King of Pop actually out bided Paul on his own songs he was looking to buy the rights back on.

Forbes estimated his stake in Sony/ATV to be worth at least $350 million which includes catalogs for the Beatles and many Elvis Presley songs. Jackson bought ATV in 1985 for about $47.5 million and in a brilliant move sold it to Sony for about $95 million in 1995, retaining half interest!

Michael Jackson has an extravagant lifestyle and many of us were able to see him on a wild shopping spree in Las Vegas buying paining, urns, chess sets, and other items for millions of dollars in a matter of minutes. The opinion of most people we interviewed who saw his lavish shopping spree at the Venetian gift shop is that he bought the most garish overpriced crap imaginable, but then again, it's his money - or is it?

Even though he publicly announced he is worth "billions", Forbes magazine has estimated Jackson's net worth at only $350 million. Neverland in probably one of Michael's most valuable assets as well as one of best investments. In 1998 he paid $14.6 million for it and it is now estimated to be worth at least $50 million! The estate is not a cheap as it eats up about $3 million in annually in expenses. He also has property in Vegas, Encino and elsewhere.

It is well known that he is estimated at $200 million in debt. He has posted jewelry and his Beatles catalog as collateral for past loans and then there was the very public problem he had when he didn't pay a jeweler for a custom wrist watch worth more than many of us will make in a lifetime.

Some insider say his finances right now are so precarious he has trouble paying his bills - other experts say he is in great shape and will never worry about money due to his royalties, music catalogs and real estate investments.

We may never know the truth but it, buy it's all so much fun to speculate!

December 2nd 2003. Today was a slow day for Michael Jackson news but the King of Pop leads such an interesting life, even bringing up the past is fascinating reading for our subscribers.

Yesterday we went into some of reported financial woes and mysteries, today we will continue down that path as so many of our readers have requested.

Michael's original source of his wealth was his stellar record sales. His latest album had very weak sales domestically compared to his older albums debuting at 13th on the US charts. The good news for the King of Pop is that his album is right now #1 in Great Britain. His popularity in Europe is still strong compared to what he has become here in the US and his new album is doing great in Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.

Michael now has to hope his legal woes clear up fast as he was expected to sell a upscale line of Michael Jackson business suits made by the Wakita Co a Japanese manufacturer.

Wakita Co. spokesman Junichi Ota said "If he is convicted, it will not be good for our image and we will have to reconsider the plan". The contracts to sell the suits were delayed because the new allegations came to light as the deals were about to be signed giving them the ability of backing out.

Other recent woes in Jackson past that may have hurt his finances are:
In March concert promoter Marcel Avram was awarded $5.3 million for pulling out of two millennium concerts.

In January, the infamous Sotheby's sued Jackson's company, saying he bid $1.3 million for two paintings and then changed his mind and refused to pay. The lawsuit asked the court to award at least $1.6 million in damages

A lawsuit filed in May by the Union Finance and Investment Corp. of South Korea claimed Jackson owed the firm $12 million in fees and expenses from 1988 when they were hired to help straighten out his finances. The firm said it soon discovered that Jackson had only two months worth of available funds and claimed the King of Pop was "a ticking financial time bomb waiting to explode at any moment.

A month before the lawsuit was settled which included a confidentiality clause, evidence of Michaels financial details were sealed by a judge.

December 4th, 2003. Looks like Michael Jackson has even more problems right now when he least needs it. 

Thanks to the Foxonline reporter Roger Friedman it has been reported that Michael Jackson's current manager Dieter Wiesner has quite a checkered past.

Friedman claims that he learned through his sources that Mr. Wiesner operates sex clubs and brothels in Germany. Even though these are legal businesses in Germany, does a person who is charged with sex crimes against minors need to have someone in his entourage that has this on his resume? I think not. 

Even more amazing there are fraud charges against Wiesner for selling stolen goods. He denies these charges to this day. He also has charges against him for mishandling Jackson's financial dealings in Europe. As a result of this, Michael Jackson lost control of his very valuable ''MJ'' logo in Germany and throughout Europe.

Seems to me that Michael Jackson should be looking for a new manager with a squeaky clean background! 

December 5th. According to Former Santa Barbara County Sheriff Jim, even though no charges were filled there was a second child who also claimed to have been molested in 1993 by Michael Jackson. Now we are told that this case is being reexamined even though in the past the child was reluctant to testify and the case was abandoned.

Thomas said the claims of molestation were not as severe as what was being alleged by the first boy.

The first accuser Jackson secured a reported multimillion-dollar civil settlement and eventually stopped cooperating with authorities.

This second child accuser could have been used as a corroborating witness if the primary victim had testified in court. We must assume that is why his case is being reexamined now with the third accusation about to go into the court system.

December 6th 2003. The South London Times reported that Michael Jackson was due to appear for a select audience of only 2,200 at The Coronet Club this month a famous local South London music venue that  would have be an exciting kickoff of Michael  European tour. Organizers say Mr. Jackson was then looking forward to spending Christmas in England.

The show was confirmed just days before the arrest warrant was issued which has now wrecked his plans for him to appear since his passport was seized and he is now not allowed to leave the US.

"It was a done deal" said Gloria Haydock, president of fan club MJ News International and the woman behind the plan "he had agreed to come. We were just hours from getting his final signature when all this stuff in America broke. It's very disappointing to think of what could have been. But the invitation is still open for next year."

Michael Jackson had agreed to appear alongside children's dance troupes, tribute acts and DJs. Even with the king of Pop this concert will go without him on December 14. Even though Michael was not performing, Stuart Backerman, his official spokesman publicly stated "Michael urges his fans to attend this event, celebrate his music and publicly show the world's media how much he is loved and supported by his fans worldwide." This concert would have come just a week after Justin Timberlake is due to perform there.

The Coronet opened as a theatre in 1879 and was the spot where Charlie Chaplin made his first public performance when he was only 5 years old. It played host to music greats like Frank Sinatra before becoming a movie theater which closed in 1991.

The Coronet's managing director Simon Parkes, said Jackson's show would have been a dream start for the new venture, which opened as a live venue last night with Blur. "It would have meant we had Blur, Justin Timberlake and Michael Jackson in one week. I remember when he was confirmed and I went home feeling excited about it all. Then I turned on the news."

Even if Michael is cleared of the charges, he can never turn back the hands of time and be part of this historic moment in London's music history.

December 7th 2003. Why is it that there was such a highly publicized arrest of Michael Jackson a few weeks ago, yet no charges have been filed yet? Why is it that the prosecutors are looking so deeply into the 2nd accuser in the 1993 case?

Some close to the case are saying the opening up of the 1993 case is to help make the new charges they are going to charge Michael with will stick.  The question is, will they going to be able to get these old witnesses to cooperate?

Michael Jackson's arraignment is set for Jan. 9. Sources say that this late date is not a delay tactic on the part of prosecutors, but is to accommodate the defense attorney's holiday schedule. This also gives time for the media frenzy to slow down (which it already has) and maybe for the defense attorneys and their investigators to be able to dig up more dirt on the accuser and his family, which so far has not been hard to  do.

Common sense dictates that the State must have what they felt was a strong enough case to go to a judge and convince him to sign a search warrant and arrest warrant. The state also knows that the world will be watching this case and being under a microscope leaves no room for error or any misjudgments.  No one wants to see the case get fouled up over technicalities or punish an innocent person.

An interesting point was brought up by CBS News legal analyst and defense attorney Mickey Sherman. He is very skeptical of the whole case and noted "People who commit this type of crime don't do it once or twice. They usually are serial violators. So that would mean that if he is guilty of this, victims would be coming out of the woodwork easily the last three, four, five years. If that doesn't happen, that's a problem."

He also states in regard to the prosecutors "They had to know they were going to be micro-analyzed by not only us, but the entire world. You don't bring the charges unless you've got a case, and you don't announce it or arrest him if you don't have a case. ... I think they're waiting for new victims to come forward, which makes sense."

I like most of the rests of the world can't wait for this case to unfold before my eyes!

December 9th 2003. In a huge scoop it was found that according to a confidential memo from Child welfare investigators dated Nov. 26, 2003 found there was no basis for allegations that Michael Jackson had abused the boy now accusing him of molestation!

This shocking memo was from a regional administrator to bureau chief Charles Sophy of the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services. A source familiar with this amazing document confirmed its authenticity to both CBS and the Associated Press.  The basis of this memo was an investigation made last February.

According to the memo the boy and his brother told the investigators from Child welfare that Michael Jackson had not sexually abused them at any time. Even their older sister who was privy to many of the encounters between her brothers and Michael said she claimed she had never witnessed anything inappropriate from Michael Jackson.

What is even more shocking than the memo is that Santa Barbara County District Attorney Thomas Sneddon said in a statement that his office has been aware of the investigation and the memo and it gave him no cause to not continue to peruse charges against Michael! The memo and other information from the investigation were provided to the judge when the search and arrest warrants were issued!

We are still confirming more information on these revelations and will break the news as soon as our sources are all confirmed.  You have got to check back here tomorrow! 

December 10th 2003. We scooped almost every one with the memo that could be a huge help to Michael's Jackson's defense.

Even though them memo cleared Michael as per Department of Children and Family Services investigation, after the boy who originally accused him underwent therapy and revealed in therapy that the King Of Pop did abuse him. Duty bound by law his therapist went back to the DCFS to report the allegations.

In February the accusing boy's mother stated in the investigation that "she believed the media had taken everything out of context," She also announced that the kids were never left alone. She then went on to say that Jackson would sleep on the floor in the same room that her son slept in and Jackson but never shared the bed.

We have also found that the leaked memo would probably be investigated as by state law it is supposed to be confidential to protect the identity of the minors.

What I find amazing is when the news first broke of the allegations against Michael it was top news on all of the news outlets but now hat there is evidence that could help his case, it not only was not top news, it dropped out of the headlines on most of the major internet  news sites and magazines.

Want to keep a breast of what's going on with the case? Bookmark this site and check back everyday!

December 11th 2003.  I cant wait  until tomorrow night to watch the interview of Michael Jackson parents on ABC's 20/20 which will air t 10:00 pm EST.

From what I have been told Michael's mother Katherine Jackson will not only proclaim her sons innocence but will also offer to adopt his children if in fact he loses custody of them. We brought up the fact he could lose his children the day the news broke of his arrest warrant.

When asked if she and her husband Joe would adopt her two grandsons and her granddaughter she exclaimed "Oh yes. Oh yes." and Joe added "Well ... they're my grandkids. I have to."   

According to his mother, Michael told her "Mother, don't worry, it's not the truth" and she said "But I told him you don't know these wicked people, the people are just mean and wicked." 

Joe Jackson said in the interview "Knowing Michael, as a father, I know that he doesn't do things like that...his mother knows it, too."

This should be some great TV!

December 14th 2003. We have just received conformation that child welfare investigators have been trying to interview Michael's Jackson's 3 children, Prince Michael I and II, and his daughter, Paris since November 18th.

The agency has actually gone as far as to send investigators to show up at the Neverland ranch no less that 6 times but each time they arrived they were turned away empty handed without conducting any interviews as "no one was home" according to some insiders.

There is no way to know if the children were actually there or not and Michael has not been seen in public since November 18th, when he turned himself in and then took the infamous ride through Las Vegas.

It is important to understand that you do not need to be convicted of anything to be investigated and most experts unbiased opinion is that due to the nature of the charges that will be filed against Michael, it is in the best interest of the children to have experts examine them. This does not mean that they should be taken from his custody.

As we have previously reported that if Michael Jackson does lose custody the King of Pops parents have both promised to take custody of the three children.

December 16th 2003. Wow! We got scooped big time by Jeannette Walls of MSNBC who reported today that Michael Jackson's parents were paid to speak out and defend their son on ABC's 20/20 show last week.

She has reported that and insider informed her that his parents were "getting a percentage of the profit form the international sales of the interview.".

If that is not enough to make your skin crawl, his parents financial problem which is no secret, has caused them to set up a 3rd party payment system so they do not directly receive payment from ABC so the Jackson's creditors won't be able to go after the proceeds as long as they are not paid directly.   

The Jackson family spokesperson and ABC refused to return calls and comment on the allegations of payment for the interview.

In the past Jackson's family was willing to speak to PBS in regard to an expose on "checkbook journalism" for $100,000.00.

Some other exciting King of Pop news is that District Attorney Thomas Sneddon said in a statement that the Santa Barbara County prosecutors announced they will file charges case against Michael Jackson on this Thursday or Friday.

They are expecting a media circus and as a result delayed filing charges which is usually done at the time of arrest. Sneddon said part of the delay was to hire a firm to handle the public relations and set up a web site to disseminate information to the hundreds of news organization that are following the case.

As expected Jackson family spokesman Brian Oxman immediately criticized Sneddon's hiring of the same firm that also represents the Cartoon Network to deal with the media. He said the hiring of such a firm was improper, because "a district attorney is supposed to try the case in court, not in the press."

Oxman said that "It is an affront to common sense, if not professional ethics, for a DA to have a celebrity crisis management team, which is what this new PR firm styles itself as being," and then went on to say "First we had a press conference where the DA told jokes, and now we have a PR firm the DA has hired that also represents the Cartoon Network."

Stay tuned here for the news as it happens!

December 17th 2003. 6:35 am News flash! What is on the controversial video tape that Mr. Raymond Norman is offering to sale to shock jock Howard Stern? Howard is bidding on the tape is claimed will blow the roof off the Michael Jackson case.

Though he started the bidding at only $75.00 and there is supposedly more than one copy of this 13 minute tape, I am still dieing to see and hear what is on this tape!

The king of All Media is know for producing stunts and someone that claims to be the head of Fox News is bidding thousands of dollars against Howard Stern who is rejecting the bids and claiming to start legal action against anyone who bids against him.

Howard's good friend and lawyer Dominic Barbera who has also represented such celebrities as Jessica Hahn as got into the on air fray but provided little help in the negotiation.

Bidding ended at $200 and now everyone will tune into Stern to hear and to  his E! show to see what is on this tape.

December 18 th 2003. Today Michael Jackson was finally formally charged with a nine-count felony complaint. He is alleged to have committed seven counts alleging lewd or lascivious acts upon a child under 14 and two counts of administering an intoxicating agent.

These shocking molestation charges alone each carry between three and eight years in prison and ever it goes to trail will without doubt have the potential to become the most sensational celebrity case ever. In a press release Santa Barbara County District Attorney Tom Sneddon stated that the child will be on the stand if the case goes to trial.

Sneddon has agreed to delay Jackson's arraignment until Jan. 16 and ha has returned Michael Jackson's passport. As we reported earlier Michael's wish was to spend Christmas in Great Britain ands he is now expected to go there from December 20 th to January 6.

This is some change on circumstances since Ten months ago when; the cancer stricken boy appeared in a British documentary holding hands with Michael Jackson. Michael said in the documentary that the two had slept in the same bedroom but not the same bed. He then explained that having sleep overs with children was "sweet and innocent".

Michael Jackson became nervous after the British documentary aired and the accusing boys mother said that in order for Michael to shield the family against the press he moved her and the children out of their Los Angeles home for private jet rides to fancy hotels in Palm Beach, Florida, Westlake Village, California, and finally to Jackson's ranch, where and when the mother says the abuse occurred. She r also told attorneys she "felt held against her will" and had trouble getting personal belongings returned.

We just learned that the most serious of the crimes were alleged to have happened after the boy's mother had signed an affidavit and videotaped a statement swearing nothing improper happened with her son.

So far there have been No details of these alleged acts however the complaint that was filed repeatedly stated the acts were committed "with the intent of arousing, appealing to, and gratifying the lust, passions, and sexual desires" of both the child and the King of Pop and alleged that Michael Jackson in February and March had "substantial sexual conduct" with the child.

December 19th 2003. The latest news from the Jackson camp keeps getting stranger. The New York Post reported yesterday that Michael Jackson became a member of the black group Nation of Islam organization led by Black Muslim Louis Farrakhan.

In what was supposed to be a Jackson family reunion this weekend at which relatives would be taken on a tour of Neverland to see damage done by sheriff's deputies when they searched the ranch, has now become an event described by Michaels spokesman Stuart Backerman as "reinforcement and support" for the entertainer as he returns to his estate after being charged with child molestation. This event was described as a combination holiday party (does he still celebrate Christmas now that he is a member of the NOI?) and thank you to supporters.

The Original guest list for Saturday's event was for about 300 people, but it is growing daily and may be double that by the time the party begins. A larger amount of yet undisclosed celebrities are expected to attend the event.

Brian Oxman, a close Jackson family friend said "It's for family and friends to say thank you from Michael to people he loves and who have supported him...t's not a party. It's not a pep rally. It's not hoopla or celebration. They wanted to do something simple and quiet and the fact that it's mushroomed into these huge proportions is just the nature of Michael's life."

In other Jackson Family news, Janet Jackson will be the featured performer during the halftime show sponsored by AOL at the Super Bowl on Feb. 1 in Houston. The gala will be produced by MTV.

"There is no bigger spectacle than the Super Bowl," said Janet Jackson "It's a unique and exciting experience that I have looked forward to for many years."

The Post went far enough to say that "The King of Pop is restyling himself Jacko X" and that "High-ranking members of Nation of Islam have been working to bring Michael into Farrakhan's flock -- and Michael's conversion is now well known in the NOI community,"

Why would the soft spoken, universal love preaching King of Pop want to become a member of Farrakhan's outspoken organization? It is well know how the NOI is so controversial because of Farrakhan's its leaders' anti-Semitic and anti-gay declarations.

Michael's brother Jermaine converted to Islam in 1989. Fox News reported that Jermaine had brought Leonard Muhammad, Farrakhan's chief of staff into Michael's inner-circle as "a bodyguard".  We have been told that Jermaine and Muhammad were "making the case to Michael that he was a victim of racism and that only the NOI could save him".

The opinion of most of those that I interviewed that this move will only further alienate Michael from his core group of fans and supporters but time will tell.

December 21st 2003. Among dozens of fellow reporters and a score of fans holding signs and shouting support to Michael Jackson yesterday, I counted more 487 vehicles loads with guest entering the Neverland Ranch for Michael's "homecoming" event.

Stuart Backerman who is the King of Pops spokesman made a statement to us that "This event is to show Michael that he has the love and support of his friends and family,"

This exclusive gathering titled "You Are Not Alone" after a Jackson song, of more than 600 guests which are Michael's family, friends, various inside supporters as well as well know celebrities was the first "public" appearance of Michael since his ride through Los Vegas last month and for someone as me, the place to be.

Among the food and entertainment, friends, family and children whom Michael Jackson has helped over the years took turns giving tributes to the king of pop and showed their support in song and hand holding.

While Musician Edwin Birdsong was leaving he told us reporters that Jackson was subdued as everyone honored him "He just said "Hi," and smiled,...It was very festive and happy."

Other guests I spoke to also characterized the mood inside as upbeat and Michael Jackson looked "relaxed.".

Some of the other well know guests included rapper MC Hammer, musician Robert Townsend of the Who, tennis star Serena Williams, comedian Eddie Griffin, former baseball star Darryl Strawberry, "American Idol" host and DJ Ryan Seacrest and Actor David McKnight.

Actor Tommy Davidson served as master of ceremonies while Katherine Rogers said Jermaine Jackson performed a song and a gospel choir led by Andrae Crouch performed.

As the party was breaking up, on of the cars with an unknown passengers threw a few T-shirts that read "I support Michael Jackson" to the fans that had been waiting there all day.

December 26 th 2003. When will Michael Jackson learn not to do interviews?

Many of our readers who now do not believe in the King of Pop have told me that one of the pivotal moment of whether they believe in him or not is when he claimed in a television interview with British journalist Martin Bashir on ABC this year that his obviously surgically distorted face was only operated on 2 times and that was only for his nose so he could sing better. The same statement was said more than once: "if he would lie about something so obvious, how can we believe in what else he says?"

This time Michael was interviewed by Ed Bradley on in a Los Angeles hotel room Christmas night that he stated that "of course" he still considers it acceptable to sleep with children. Mr. Jackson then went on to say "Why not?...If you're going to be a pedophile, if you're going to be Jack the Ripper, if you're going to be a murderer, it's not a good idea. That I am not...Before I would hurt a child, I would slit my wrists." 

Michael Jackson went on again to proclaim is innocence to Mr. Bradley in the interview that is scheduled to air this Sunday on CBS. His music special "Michael Jackson Number Ones." which was scheduled to air on CBS last month the day before Thanksgiving is now going to air on Friday, Jan. 2.

From what I have been told Bradley has been trying to get an interview out of Michael Jackson for quiet some time and went as far as to go to Neverland last February, but the King of Pop backed down from the interview.

CBS entertainment spokesman Chris Ender said that if Michael Jackson did not grant the interview to 60 minutes, CBS would have never rescheduled the musical special.

Jacko went on to say in the interview that in regard to Neverland ranch "I won't live there ever again," he said. "It's a house now. It's not a home anymore. I'll only visit." He claimed that the police search had been overdone and that it violated his privacy.

December 29 th 2003. Last nights 60 minutes interview of Michael Jackson by Ed Bradley has me still shaking my head today.

While there were no new revelations, I was still surprised by the interviews as a whole. Michael Jackson seemed fairly composed throughout the entire interview and the careful lighting and makeup allowed the King of Pop to have an almost normal appearance as compared to some of the less "staged" shots of him.

Basically Michael proclaimed his innocence again and complained dearly on how he was manhandled by the police and that his Neverland Ranch is no longer his home but a house to him after what he fells was the unfair treatment of his property by the police when executing the search warrant on his estate.

He complained of being handled so roughly when he was handcuffed by the Santa Barbara police that allegedly his shoulder had been dislocated and his armed bruised. He complained that "I'm in pain all the time." and can not raise his arm past a certain point and that he has problems sleeping at night with the pain. They even showed pictures of his bruised arm that was allegedly taken after his booking.

Michael Jackson clearly showed he was upset when he described how he had to go to the bathroom and was locked in a feces smeared restroom and taunted by the police for more than 45 minutes.

Through it all Michael Jackson seems very supportive of the child who is accusing him of these terrible crimes and claims that it is being done by forces other than the child and the motive is for financial gain.

One of the more interesting moments of the interview with Ed Bradley was when Mr. Bradley asked Michael for a second time if he would allow his children to sleep with a 45 year old male who is under suspicion of molestation children as he is. Michael finally answered if he knew the man he would let his children sleep with the man. I guess Michael is more trusting than Mr. Bradley or I am based upon Mr. Bradley's reaction!

Two things struck me when watching this interview. First of all I was expecting his body language to clearly indicate to me what was going on inside of him and quite honestly it was a very hard read. It was also quiet clear that if Michael does in fact have to serve time with the general population of a prison, I can't see him lasting a week.

King of Pop Michael Jackson News From November 2003

Wednesday November 19th authorities announced that an arrest warrant has been issued for Michael Jackson also know as the King Of Pop. He is being accused of an unspecified amount of  multiple counts of lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14.  Formal charges are expected to be filed after Thanksgiving.

Jackson continued to work on the final touches of his current video despite the fact that the fact that the Santa Barbara District Attorney Thomas W. Sneddon Jr demanded his return and the fact he had a warrant out for his arrest.

Jackson's attorney Mark Geragos made formal statements claiming that Jackson came back to confront the charges head-on, and Michaels spokesperson Stuart Backerman calling the current allegations "outrageous."

The Santa Barbara Sheriff Jim Anderson said that authorities were "in contact" with Jackson's lawyers and that Michael Jackson had been given the opportunity to surrender "within a specified period of time."

The following statement was made on Nov 19th, 2003 by Jim Anderson:

Yesterday morning at around 8:30 a.m., investigators from the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department and the Santa Barbara District Attorney's Office served a search warrant at the Neverland Ranch in Los Olivos. Simultaneous to the service of the warrant at the Neverland Ranch, two search warrants were also served in Southern California. Approximately seventy investigators from the Sheriff's Department and the District Attorney's Office were involved in the service of the warrant at the Neverland Ranch. The operation was concluded at around 11:00 P.M. last night. The service of these warrants was part of an ongoing investigation alleging criminal misconduct on the part of Michael Jackson.

The basis for this investigation regarding Mr. Jackson involves allegations of Child Molestation, 288 (a) of the California Penal Code.

Mr. Jackson has also been directed to surrender his passport when he is taken into custody.

While we appreciate the level of interest generated by this case, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department is committed to maintain the integrity of this investigation with respect to both legal and ethical considerations.

We will not be commenting on issues specific to this investigation beyond what has already been released.

Jim Anderson,SHERIFF

November 20th 2003. Michael Jackson arrived by private jet at the Santa Barbara Airport around noon. The self proclaimed king of Pop was then immediately taken into custody by the Santa Barbara Sheriff's Department at the airport and then was transported to the Main Jail in handcuffs to be booked.

He was formally booked on charges of violation of section 288 (a) of the California Penal Code. Even though $3 million was the amount of bail set for his case, he was able to immediately post it and was out of the facility in less than 50 minutes.

Michael returned back to Vegas by private jet as soon as he did The news stations went live again, and now they were broadcasting Jackson's journey through the city's streets for two hours as if it was the OJ chase. The fans were going nuts with  Hundreds followed the motorcade all trying to get a glimpse of the king of pop or to shake Jackson's hand.

Obviously the story does not end here as Mr. Jackson will be arraigned on the charges at Santa Barbara Superior Court at 8:30AM on January 9, 2004.

This off the wall episode in the life of the former member of the 70s rock band the Jackson five will end up being quite some thriller for Michael Jackson fans and haters alike.

What went wrong with this great musician who was at  his peak of fame in the 70's and 80s? What are all these charges about? Will he moonwalk his way out of the courtroom a freeman or will he be looking at himself as the man in the mirror in a jail cell?

The charges Mr. Jackson is facing can carry a 2, 4, or 6 year jail terms if he is convicted for the multiple counts of Child Molestation. 

Today November 21st Mr. Jackson was staying in seclusion for most of the day at a hotel and spa outside the city. I was told he was finishing work on a music video. Unfortunately I was unable to get the hotel manager to say if Jackson was a guest there.

Our sources tell us that other Members of Jackson's family also were at a recording studio in Vegas, apparently without him.

November 22nd 2003. The question of the day fans an reporters alike were asking was "Where is Michael?". Fans were and reporters were looking high an low for him and helicopters were still buzzing his ranch as well as other known "hideouts".

So where was the King of Pop? The answer was simple: putting the final touches on his song  "One More Chance." on a sound stage.

Fans who did guess he was at the studio were carrying signs with messages of support and those who hated Michael Jackson carried signs of hate and screamed at some of the fans for still supporting him.

The 23rd of November proved to be another exciting day in the King of Pop saga with candle light vigils and shows of support for the entertainer around the world.

Weeping teens holding candle and home made signs and self styled imitators of the King of Pop were giving impromptu performances in the street. Music that Michael made spanning three decades could be heard playing from car radios and boom boxes.

Supporters of Michael and his staunchest  critics kept asking the other reporters and me how this could have happened  again.

Monday the 24th Michael Jackson released a website proclaiming again his innocence of the latest allegations made against him.

The site was the brainchild of Stuart Backerman who is Jackson spokesman. He did this so he could communicate directly with the news media and fans and avoid any statements made by others that claim that they are speaking on behalf of Michael Jackson.

Jackson stated that the site would serve as a source for "official communications on my case." Jackson went on to say that "any statement that does not appear on this website must be considered unauthorized.

Statements on his site include " As you know, the charges recently directed at me are terribly serious," Jackson goes on to say "They are, however, predicated on a big lie. This will be shown in court, and we will be able to put this horrible time behind us."

Regardless of how some of you may feel we have to remember that he is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law and we have clearly seen that there has been world wide support for the King of Pop. This case will prove to be the court case of the century and I wouldn't miss it for anything!

In and expected move on November 25th, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge David Yaffe granted Michael Jackson a court order against the aircraft company XtraJet, which was attempting to sell a videotape made on November 20th of Michael and his attorney while they flew from Las Vegas to Santa Barbara which was taken without their knowledge and consent to the highest bidder.

Mark Geragos, Michael's attorney made the following statement: "The videotaping of my client conferring with me was illegal and outrageous, as was the aircraft company's attempt to sell that tape for profit… "This entire case is about cash, and anyone who believes differently is living in their own Neverland. We will be absolutely relentless in our pursuit of any and all extortionists regardless of how they try to gift wrap their lies in the cloak of justice. Michael is not going to be a piñata for every money-hungry publicity seeker to strike in the hopes of hitting it rich."

The judge's ruling prohibits XtraJet from releasing the tape until a further hearing which is set next month. We have been told that Jackson and his attorney are looking for a permanent prohibition.

Stuart Backerman, Jackson's spokesperson stated "Anyone watching this case can see that new lows are being hit every day. Motivated parties are taking obscene measures to injure Michael with false allegations. We will aggressively challenge the rogue's gallery of grifters who are seeking dividends from Michael's ordeal. There is a very real, human price being exacted here, and Michael will do what it takes to safeguard his family and his name."

I have to say that as a reporter I have seen and heard seen many terrible things over the years that makes me question the intent of my fellow reporters and journalists. I can only hope that no one would have bid for this tape which would be a slap in the face of American morals and the criminal justice system. Whether you believe he is innocent or guilty, everyone has the right to a fair trail and the ability to speak confidentially with their council. This is a basic freedom that all American weird or not, wealthy or not, famous or not deserve.

November 26th proved to be a day of even more revelations, twists and turns in the Michael Jackson case.

First there was the apology made by District Attorney Thomas W. Sneddon Santa Barbara County's top prosecutor. Apparently he was criticized for making the following remark to reporters during a news conference  announcing the allegations against Jackson: "I hope that you all stay long and spend lots of money because we need your sales tax to support our offices."

DA Sneddon was quoted as saying "I think the criticism was valid...I think to some extent (the comment) was inappropriate. I feel bad about it because I should have known better."

Second Wade Robson, 21 An Australian entertainer who is now a choreographer and songwriter for Britney Spears and boy band 'N Sync, has come to the very public defense of Michael Jackson.

In an interview with Sydney's The Daily Telegraph newspaper he stated he first met Jackson when he was five and their friendship had always been "creatively based." and that during a visit to Jackson's Neverland Ranch he shared a bed with the King of Pop when he was a small boy but nothing "strange" happened.

He was quoted as saying about Michael "He is on one level a genius, a creative artist, an intellectual man. But on the other hand, he is still a kid because he has never lived through regular things that men go through, that people go through in growing up."

"Everything in life is so complex, he just wanted something around that was simple - to hang out with kids," and that Michael had "no concept of reality".

Lastly, at that time Jackson was being booked on Nov. 20th, Lee Kevin Madden, 27 of Los Angeles, was arrested after allegedly getting aboard Michael Jackson's private jet when the Mr. Jackson flew into town. Santa Barbara police Sgt. Dave Gonzalez said Mr. Madden was discovered aboard the jet by Michael Jackson's security people and held for the Santa Barbara Municipal Airport patrol; Gonzalez also said Madden was booked for investigation of misdemeanor trespassing and released.

Madden had in his possession at the time of arrest a video camera, digital camera, notepad and clipboard, and claimed to be a reporter with the Splash Agency which identifies itself on its Web site as an independent entertainment news and picture agency, with it's corporate headquarters in London.

The splash website displayed aerial photos of Neverland ranch credited to "Lee Madden / Splash." Other photos the interior of an airplane with a hat atop a seat identified as Michaels hat, and an exterior shot of a jet in a hangar with individual descending its stairs identified as Jackson.

The possibility of a connection between the alleged trespass and the videotapes made of Michael and his lawyer was under investigation, but no connection had been made.

As of November 27th  the Santa Barbara County District Attorney now says charges against Michael Jackson will not be filed until some time after Dec. 15. This give Michael and his lawyers so more time to do damage control and hopefully put the fear of God into anyone foolish enough to attempt to circulate any copies of the tapes that were made of Mr. Jackson and his lawyer on a private jet on the way to be booked in California last week. 

If any portion of these tapes are released into public, in our opinion here at the King of Pop News, it would be almost impossible for Michael to get a fair trail. 

More and more facts are coming to light about Jackson accuser and the family. Stuart Backerman, Jackson's spokesperson as well as the Santa Barbara County district attorney's office declined to comment about the past lawsuits involving the accuser's family.

The accusing family has been in two previous cases that involved abuse allegations: the first was a lawsuit in which they said they were battered by security guards at a mall, and a bitter divorce fight in which the father pleaded no contest to spousal abuse and child cruelty. The J.C. Penney Co. paid the family $137,500 to settle a lawsuit In November 2001. Court records show that the suit alleged in 1998 the security guards physically beat the boy, his mother and his brother in the mall parking lot after the boy left the JC Penney's carrying clothes that he allegedly hadn't been paid for. It was also clamed that the mother was sexually assaulted by one of the guards.

The boy's mother had filed for divorce shortly before the settlement in 2001. The father's attorney, Russell Halpern, said the mother had lied about the abuse and had a "Svengali-like" ability to make train her children to lie. Criminal charges were filed about the alleged abuse.

The wife had allegedly written a script for their children to use when they were questioned in a civil deposition. Halpern said "She wrote out all their testimony. I actually saw the script …I remember my client showing me, bringing the paperwork to me."

In 2002, the boy's father was charged with four counts of child cruelty, and one count each of injuring a child, making a threat and false imprisonment. The other charges were dismissed. We have also learned that the father pleaded no contest to spousal abuse in 2001.

November 28th. Yesterday it was reported during a Thanksgiving dinner for the homeless by Jamie Masada, owner of The Laugh Factory in West Hollywood, that the alleged victim of the latest child abuse charge is in extremely poor health that his remaining kidney is failing and that he needs a transplant. Masada said he saw the boy earlier this week at home where he is being treated except for his dialysis treatments.

Jamie Masada said he brought Jackson and the child together about two years ago when the child at that time was only given a few weeks to live due to an advanced form of cancer and it's complications. Doctors removed a large tumor from the boy's stomach  and at the same time took out his spleen and one of his kidneys some time ago.

Since the search warrant was issue for Neverland, people has clamored to support the King of Pop. Some of the most outspoken supporters have been his family and friends such as his friend Elizabeth Taylor. 

Most of the email we receive here is in support of Michael. The overwhelming response we have received is from the United States, Japan, India, and Brazil with most of the support coming to us from Europe, 

Conspiracy theorists clam that raid on Michael Jackson's home was done purposely on the day his greatest hits album "Number Ones" was released. They also bring up the jovial demeanor of DA Tom Sneddon as he announced the charges. As we reported here Sneddon later apologized for his remarks.

Now the race card is being played even to the extent that Michael's brother Jermaine Jackson described his brother's arrest to a "lynching." and Jesse Jackson said the arrest was so "impeccably timed that it leads to even more suspicions. ... It seems aimed to destroy this media mogul."

Black Newsday columnist Sheryl McCarthy described Jackson as "the first celebrity to physically transform himself from a black person to a Caucasian, or a facsimile of one."  With a changed face, hair, and skin color (Michael claims to  have vitiligo a disease that causes pigment loss).

I personally find it surprising that someone who has basically tuned themselves from a black person to a white person receive such support and claims of racial discrimination from the black community.

What's your opinion about the race card being played?

November 29th. The latest development in the Jackson case maybe one of the most disturbing aspect of the case yet. It seems that with all of the negative publicity surrounding Michael Jackson that many charities, even schools and cities want nothing to do with the King of Pop and are shunning his past and present generosity and may not even accept gifts from him in the future.   

Michael Jackson was listed in the 2000 Guinness Book of World Records as the world record holder for "most charities supported by a pop star." Wouldn't it be a shame if all the good that he has done over the years is forgotten or even outright whitewashed from society?

One example of the most outrageous behavior I have seen to date is that Gardner Street Elementary School a Hollywood elementary school that Jackson attended for three months in 1969 put up plywood to cover the first two words "Michael Jackson" on the "Michael Jackson Auditorium."

Olga Quinones, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Unified School District said parents brought up concerns at a meeting last week that the auditorium's name would bring the school "unwarranted attention."

Seems to be he has been tried and convicted even before he has even entered a court room. Lets hope more people come to their senses as even of he is found guilty why should the people who need his help not receive it?

November 30th. It has come to our attention that even more charities have tuned their back on the king of pop.

Michael Shetzer the director of corporate relations for the International Child Art Foundation removed a link from its website to an organization called Music for Giving. Charities receive a percentage of profits from every Jackson song downloaded there.

The other snub that came to our attention was the Bloomington Indiana high school marching band dropped the Jackson song "Thriller" from its Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade play list. The Band director Thomas Wilson told The New York Times "Thriller" would not be appropriate for the "morals and ideals" the parade represents.

Tomorrow we will examine Michael Jackson finances and alleged lack thereof.
