Ode to Michael Jackson… à la Montréal

The internet is fluttering with news that Michael Jackson has died. Like a fruit fly to a pride parade, scandal seemed to follow the much-loved Jacko. Yet despite the wide ranging opinions of him, it is difficult to argue Michael’s immense musical contribution.
