The "Thriller" Is Almost Gone

Mackie Jackson, it don't matter if you're black or white.
A day of mixed blessings...the world again turns itself onto Michael Jackson's music in the wake of his death, and our community celebrates the fiftieth (50th) birthday of Mackie. Yes, it is sad business that the innovator of so much HypnoSoundTrack has left this mortal coil too soon, but coinciding with the passing, is our HypnoPal's birthday. In both cases we now are paying attention to each man's body of work. Maybe Mackie never made a 27,000,000 times over platinum record, but I bet Mr. Jackson could never have been crowned mountain bike champion of West Virginia. Each fellow contributed something, and thank heaven at least one (1) is still here to make our days better.
