Michael Jackson Traffic Jam

So by now everyone around the worlds has heard the news of Michael Jackson’s death. If you turn on a TV it completely overshadows everything else going on in the world. I guess what I found most interesting is how this has effected the internet, news sites specifically. I just read over on Slashdot about how the average responsiveness of major news sites had dropped from 100% to 86%. Now thats an awful lot of traffic.

I know the guy made an awful lot of great selling music, but I had no idea people would be so crazy about his death. I guess I figured since you didn’t hear any news of him in the US ,unless he was doing something crazy like hanging a baby over a railing, he was pretty much forgotten about. I stand corrected though.
