Earlier today, I decided to wear the shirt that is shown on the above left. It has "Mic Jackson" on it. At that time, he was alive. I am still wearing it this late evening. Michael Jackson, now dead, is a kindred spirit. He was deprived of his childhood and his own life, badly treated by his father, misunderstood, lonely, and depressed. I have referred to him as my twin sister. My favorite song by him, which I own on vinyl, is "Beat It". I also enjoy Bad, and Billy Jean. However, his music is not within my genre, which is rock. Other favorite music is from the rock artists (groups) listed above.

Jonesers were given huge expectations as children in the optimistic 1960s, and then confronted with a different reality as they came of age in the pessimistic 1970s, leaving them with a certain unrequited, jonesing quality. The "Peace Sign" and &rew Lerner were created on 2/21/1958.
