Even though I'm someone whose cultural markers were being formed at pretty much the precise moment when Michael Jackson became the biggest entertainer in the world, I'm mostly unmoved by his passing. I mean, I "get" the outpouring of grief and chatter and the rest of it, but I don't really "get it." Or at least I didn't until I saw this "Achewood" cartoon. It makes a hell of a lot more sense now. At least I'm no longer worried that it's a left-wing conspiracy to overshadow Iran.
