It was one of those moments you’ll remember forever.  You hear an astonishing announcement that Michael Jackson has passed away.  Then, you realize where you are.  And, it’s one of those moments where you will always know where you were when you heard the news.  I was in my neighborhood playing horseshoes.  I got a text from work with the news.  I was stunned.  Everyone I was with couldn’t believe it.  My first thought was that I didn’t think he was sick.  It’s weird, but I didn’t even think about a drug overdose.  I, initially, thought accident or heart attack.  We played back to back Michael Jackson music as a tribute.  I don’t think I’ll ever forget it.  So, where were you?
