Saying Goodbye to an Idol

I was never a huge Michael Jackson fan, but it’s hard not to be moved by the sadness of his bereaved fans. As I thought about it the other day, I realized that my feelings about the late John Updike, explained here and here,  had something in common with the sense of loss Jackson’s fans feel.

I put those ideas into a KERA/NPR commentary that aired this morning. Read or listen here if you like.
