89-year old Hall-of-Fame talent manager & head of the Jackson family, Joe Jackson, has succumbed to pancreatic cancer, has quoted "I have seen more sunsets than I have left to see. The sun rises when the time comes and whether you like it or not the sun sets when the time comes." Has now joined his son Michael his brother Lawrence & the rest of his passed family, my thoughts & prayers Janet & the rest of the Jackson family.

I'm sorry for him. But he didn't look like a grieving father when his son, Michael, passed away. He was advertising his company.

This man was a prick. He deserves no sympathy.

By many accounts the man was an opportunistic child abuser. That's it, I wouldn't wish that for cancer on even someone like him.

He beat his kids into success, yeah, but still, it sucks.

Can't feel sympathy for this one, though.
