Michael Jackson, who helped put MTV on the map, will become, at least for a couple hours, literally MJTV worldwide.

Michael Jackson’s July 7th funeral tribute will be carried live by at least these television and cable networks:

ABC
NBC
CNN
HLN
CNN International
MSNBC
E! Entertainment

The only question is – what is wrong with the other major news networks? CBS and Fox are apparently still deciding – as if they have something else people would rather watch on 10:00 am on a Tuesday. These are ‘news’ networks, aren’t they?

From Neverland Ranch Los Angeles is about two hours away. Presumably, you can find plenty of additional activities in the Los Angeles / Hollywood area.

Heading the other direction, north, Hearst Castle is 1.5 hours from Neverland. It is a very scenic drive along the coast and the Castle is an amazing sight, both inside and out. There are at least four different tours of the Castle (it is that large) and they sell out quickly.
