Article Headline Is Not A Thriller

Okay... I'm not usually the type of person who makes fun of, or pokes fun at people or businesses, preferring instead to do so at myself. But I just saw a headline of an article published on Friday, October 14, 2011 by the Tokyo Times - a fine periodical, if I do say so myself.

The headline reads:

‘Michael Jackson Tribute’ concert in Japan will give relief to children

Geezus. You know Michael Jackson was suspected of being a little too friendly towards children, right? Apparently having to pay-off families to make embarrassing allegations of child molestation disappear. I mean... just what sort of relief will they offer the children? No... wait... don't tell me... I don't want to know.

It just sounds a little too close to child molestation.

Perhaps a better headline could have been : 'Michael Jackson Tribute' concert in Japan to benefit children's charity

Or something like that.

The two concerts to be held in Japan are for a great cause, however, providing financial aid for children who have been affected by the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami that crippled the northeast coast of Japan.

Regardless, here's a link to the article: HERE

But man... that headline. Yeesh.
