Will all due respect Mark, saying that anyone but himself is responsible for his own actions is, well imo ridiculous .
We as a society should take personal responsibility a bit more serious. To blame anyone else for ones actions is a cop out.
I'm a HUGE believer in people taking responsibility for their own octions. I can't stand to see people sue McD's because they didn't know coffee was hot, or parents not letting kids take responsibility when they get into trouble.
But if you lock up a man in solitary for thirty years, you gotta figure he's not going to be "right" when released. It's a bit of an extreme example, but I didn't think MJ's reality was anywhere near "real", so who am I to say that it didn't affect him?
Again, I'm not really defending him (and absolutely not if the molestation charge was legit).... I'm just talking the weird skin-lightening and plastic surgery-type weirdness.
