Rant #57: Michael Jackson Will Not Alter My Eating Habits
I just read that comedian/social activist Dick Gregory has said that he will fast until the truth comes out about the death of Michael Jackson. He will fast for 40 days, only drinking water, "until the truth is uncovered, not just another story, about the sudden death of Michael Jackson, one of the world's most brilliant and talented people."
On first glance, I would say this has to be a joke, but Gregory hasn't made anyone laugh in more than 40 years, so I know he will go ahead with this. He has fasted before; he will do it again.
Perhaps he can get Rev. Al to follow him on this crusade. And what is the crusade?
Does he want the authorities to say that Jackson was murdered? Would that put him on the road to his next soy burger?
Well, it got Gregory's name in the paper. You know what they say: "No press is bad press."
As for me, it's easy as A-B-C.
Give me a hamburger!
