Friday, June 26, 2009 For the Record

The scene on Hollywood Boulevard on Friday, June 26, 2009 - the day after the death of Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson the third celebrity death of the week after Ed McMahon, then Farah Fawcett and Hollywood was still at it. Jackson's star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame is right in front of Grauman's Chinese Theater, and news crews from all around the world descended on the spot. This was the big one. Unless you had press credentials you waited in line for an hour or more to walk by the star. LAPD shut down the north side of the boulevard the news vans and satellite trucks feeding the worldwide media had to park somewhere. And the police were out in force with tens of thousands of people flooding the area crowd control was a priority.

For those of us who were never all that impressed with the man's work, and appalled at his strange self-mutilation some attempt to turn himself into a waif-like white woman or maybe Peter Pan on drugs and all the business with the child molestation charges and all that stuff the scene on the boulevard was puzzling. But much that happens out here is puzzling so you just document it.

The fans tell us all how wonderful he was

Crowd control and none of us who have lived in Hollywood for twenty years or more remember them bringing out the horses before - but they were kind of cool

This guy was the first of the week, but no one was paying attention

The scene was a bit disconcerting, so it seemed best to just go home
