Michael Jackson's Mother has not as yet decided where to bury him.
My Pal the G-Man came up with this truly brilliant idea.
Invite his Mother to bury Michael Jackson here.
St. Louis is:
1. Centrally-located in the American Heartland.
2. St. Louis has a great African-American musical entertainment tradition from Scott Joplin, W. C. Handy, Josephine Baker, Ike and Tina Turner, Katherine Dunham, Chuck Berry and of course, Nellie!
3. Having Michael Jackson buried here would be a real tribute to St. Louis', East St. Louis' and indeed America's African-American musical heritage.
Mayor Slay...are you reading the blog today??
The City of St. Louis could construct a world class,audio-video-interactive Michael Jackson Memorial and Museum in Forest Park.
Imagine this, every visitor from across the world, who pays for admission, would know that 50% of the ticket price would go to support Music in the Schools programs and scholarships for talented young musicians and entertainers...we might even be able to establish an adjucnt Michael Jackson American Pop Music Academy here.
I'll bet Nellie would step up to be an instructor and "inspirer."
I think it's a cool idea and a win win win on many levels.
