Joe Jackson denies burial will be at Neverland Ranch..


LOS ANGELES Michael Jackson's father, Joe, says planning for the pop star's funeral is awaiting results of a second autopsy.

Joe Jackson told reporters outside the family's Los Angeles compound at midday Monday that the second autopsy is under way, but he expects results soon. The county coroner conducted an autopsy on Friday but has deferred a decision on the cause of death.

Joe Jackson denies reports that his son will be buried at his Neverland ranch. He says, "That's not true."

He also says that Michael Jackson's children are happy and are in the company of other children about their own age.

The Rev. Al Sharpton, who spent the morning with the Jacksons, says consideration of how to celebrate the legacy of the pop star must be done carefully.

1. Joe's got hisself several dozen grandkids from what I hear, so there
is no lack of cousins for the kids to spend time with. And a whole passel of aunts and uncles......

10. I seriously doubt it. And he sounds like such a self-absorbed jerk,
he probably won't have much to do with the MJ kids.

I like the idea of them staying with the only family they've ever known.

2. I don't think MJ or his estate even owns Neverland anymore.
Perhaps the new owners would object to having him buried there.

3. What? Just because he's not in the baseball hall of fame....
...doesn't mean that Shoeless Joe Jackson should have *ANY* say in where MJ is buried.

5. I thought he had to sell the ranch
Isn't that why he was in a rented mansion?

6. Neverland is off the beaten path
So, a burial site closer to his family/friends might be a better.

7. Joe should have him cremated and held
in a fancy urn to place on the mantle. He can point at it and say I taught him all he knew.

11. He didn't own it so why would he be buried there?
