Michael Jackson, Still Dead, OD'd: Also, TOTALLY MURDERED

PROPOFOLOh, in case you were wondering of what Michael Jackson died, somehow, it was the drugs. Also his hands and feet were basically pincushions, it sounds like. Update: Oh and it is now called a homicide. Go read People if you want to know a LOT more; this is totally my station and I am getting off this train now.

From the L.A. Times blog piece:

"On the morning Jackson died, Murray … said he gave Jackson valium at 1:30 a.m. When that didn’t work, he said, he injected lorazepam intravenously at 2 a.m. At 3 a.m., when Jackson was still awake, Murray administered midazolam.

Over the next few hours, Murray said he gave Jackson various drugs. Then at 10:40 a.m., Murray administered 25 milligrams of propofol … "

That all sounds pretty reasonable to me. I wonder what could possibly have gone wrong?

I've done worse. And my medical degree is from the University Of My Mind.

Well, maybe, but I think Murray's own description of what he did, as recounted above, may have been enough to provide grounds for the murder charge against him.

From the Yahoo news piece linked above: "Forensic tests found the powerful anesthetic propofol acted together with at least two sedatives to cause Jackson's death, the official said."

So Lorazepam interacted with "at least two sedatives"? I count three (lorazepam, midazolam and valium) in Murray's on account — and that's not including the "various drugs" also mentioned, whatever they were …

I guess the warm milk and Deepak Chopra relaxation download weren't cutting it. Ook.

1. Propofol is necessary at 10:40 PM, not 10:40AM.

2. If Michael Jackson was gay, THEN WHERE ARE THE UPPERS? Seriously – this is a drug cocktail meant for fat secretaries that drink coffee milkshakes.
