Celebrating? No, I’m trying to put some perspective on the “irrational exuberance” and misplaced fond memories about his life.

Your “perspective” is un-healthy, and indicates fixations, something MJ also clearly struggled with.

The passing of a pop culture icon and tabloid perenial is big news on a cultural level, while his personal life was curious and controversial, his public life demonstrated a remarkable and successful dedication to charity.
