    Scattered thoughts. The Legend Continues – I love this vid. I’m going to check Amoeba in Hollywood next week when I get there to see if they have any copies I can buy. The 2005 entry that Michael was given his passport & bond back made my heart ache. The meeting of JB & FD w/ Michael on this day in 2009 made me so SAD! In just over a week he was gone. I don’t care if anyone agrees with me or not but I believe if Michael had been in their hands earlier, we never would have lost him. :-(((
