LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Jackson family is considering a series of simultaneous global celebrations and other ideas as they decide how to commemorate the life of the King of Pop, the Rev. Al Sharpton said Saturday.

Sharpton is a longtime family friend who plans to meet with the family Sunday.

Like I said earlier, they're going to melt Jackson's body (which is mostly plastic and not biodegradable) into Legos, turning the tables and letting the kids play with him for once.

"News, Sharpton to meet with Jackson family on memorial."

This is so predictable that I would not even consider it newsworthy. Sharpton just doesn't have a place anymore.

Sharpton will do anything to get in front of a camera. Same with Jesse Jackson ("the other Jackson"). They're both so irrelevant it's pathetic.

I'm waiting on a statement from OJ next that he had nothing to do with this.

Agree, I think the fault in the headline is "news" Sorry this isn't news, it should be on E not Cnn, Fox, etc..
