neverland nevermore

It has been reported in various places that Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch has been told to shut down.  The reason for this is that Mike seems to have stopped carrying Worker’s Comp. Insurance, and he also hasn’t paid some employees since December or even earlier.

Now, there’s a whole bunch about this that kinda gets me thinking.  Here’s a few:

Why would people continue to work somewhere that they’re not getting paid?  I know that you’ve got to be somewhat out there to work at a place like that, but cripes.  Even loonies need to get paid, right?  I’m sure that there have been promises made from the management, and Mike himself, that things will look up soon.  I wouldn’t be too sure about that.  By all reports his finances have been in dire straits for years, and that it’s only a matter of time before it all comes crashing down.

The second aspect of this that intrigues me is the hot rumor right now that Jermaine Jackson is poised to publish a tell-all expose about Mike.  In a way I feel awful for Mike.  People he should be able to trust after everything is said and done are looking to profit by him.  His dad’s always been a real positive influence, right?  Now his brother might just throw him under the bus.  That’s family for ya.

In a way, I think it might be best for everyone if Mike falls all the freaking way, goes broke, and becomes worthless.  Then maybe he’ll finally be able to see himself.  And then maybe he’ll finally get his shit together.
