Think at your own risk.

The sound of history marching on
Okay, so I know Michael Jackson is happy to be acquitted, but his website is running a flash video comparing his acquittal with the release of Nelson Mandela from prison and the fall of the Berlin Wall...

The site also confirms that spokeslady Raymone Bain was indeed fired, her pre-verdict denials notwithstanding. (Man! No more appearances on "The Abrams Report...!") Ouch.

BTW, after nearly two years, the bets have expired at intrade.com regarding the MJ verdict. More than 16,000 people took part, with a slight majority having bet that he would be convicted on at least one of the lewd act charges, and a clear majority thinking he'd get tagged with at least one of the drinks counts. Betonsports has already moved on (to Lindsey Lohan's wedding potential, Beyonce's sitcome potential and other important stuff). Their new best bet:

Which of the following will occur with Willie Nelson's new reggae album?

His Reggae Album will sell under 500 copies
+5000
His New Reggae Album will reach Billboard's Top 10 (overall)
+1000
Willie Nelson will get caught smoking Pot
+200
Willie Nelson will win a Grammy
+500
Willie Nelson will record an Album with Sean Paul
+500
Willie Nelson will make a movie with Ali G
+5000
Willie Nelson will have an affair with Beyonce
+5000
Willie Nelson will grow hair dreds and start dressing like Bob Marley


yeah man.
