5. It's a de-facto news break anyway
There isn't any news on the air to take a break from today.

(What really is disconcerting is recalling how long Princess Diana was covered 24/7....We might be subjected to many days of All Jackson All the Time

13. This is also a good time for the physical act of love
Which is why I drink only distilled water, or rain water, and only pure-grain alcohol

11. I got caught up on some "Bones" episodes I had saved
and on "Burn Notice" too :)

I have 13 hours of "Damages" for a later time when I'm in the mood to pay attention :)

3. Yeah I think it's a little too much myself.
Unfortunately now we're going to be subject to endless hours of speculation over what caused his death.

12. Why can't you find other news
There are plenty of outlets that aren't covering MJ all day. Why can't you try CSPAN, Democracy Now, commondreams or the many other outlets out there.

This really should be expected.
