Q of the Day: Fallen soldiers or MJ?

Question of the Day: Which is more important to YOU: fallen soldiers or Michael Jackson? Who should be getting the TV coverage? The brave soldiers that gave their lives over the 4th of July weekend or the "King of Pop"?

This is just ridiculous to me. There was a soldier killed on the same day MJ died. Do you know his name? Have you seen any stories about him? The MJ spectacle is incredibly embarrassing to me. We as a nation care more about a musician than the brave individuals giving their lives for our country. These husbands, wives, fathers, mother, sons, and daughters should be FAR MORE IMPORTANT that some guy that got up on some stupid stage and danced around and grabbed his crotch! All of the news channels are telling us what a great man he was, what an influential man he was, what a talent we've lost... bull shit! I wouldnt even leave my children in the same house as him!! MJ is NOT important. IMPORTANT NEWS: North Korea, the economy, Afghanistan, Iraq, not to meantion ALL of the soldiers we lost over the INDEPENDENCE DAY weekend. The 4th of July was a hard day for soldiers and their families. There were many lives lost. I was sick and tired of the media attention weeks ago. But this is absurd.

So here's a moment of silence for Lt. Bradshaw, who unfortunately lost his life amongst an American spectacle... I'm so sorry that you didn't get the attention you deserved, Brian...

Lt. Brian Bradshaw, 24, 1st Battalion, 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Airborne Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, Fort Richardson, Alaska, died in Kheyl, Afganistan, of wounds suffered when an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle.
