First time I was ever grounded was because of Michael Jackson. I was 6 and one of his world premier music vidoes (mini movies) was on for the first time. I lost track of time... it was well into the night and parents were out looking for me. Grounded 2 weeks. I remember saying to my mother... but "it was Michael Jackson... i was fine". I am sure thousands of people are blogging about his legacy and life. As a child of the 80s... need a i say more.
