One of Today's 40,762,819 Michael Jackson Posts 

Not Guilty on all 10 counts. Not surprised, although I wasn't following it closely, because all the cable newsies kept saying the defense was able to undermine every prosecution witness, and Jackson's ex-wife told the jury he (moon)walks on water. Reasonable doubt. End of story.

End of story! AMEN! AMEN! AMEN! Wish it could have come sooner!

What'll be the Next Big Story now that Michael's trial is over and after Natalee Holloway's disappearance is solved? Who knows ... but there'll be one because all the cable news channels have 1,440 minutes to fill each and every day. Odds are it won't be anything really meaningful ... maybe something about Lindsay Lohan and how and why she became so emaciated-looking.

UPDATE: One last comment -- a verdict of "not guilty" doesn't mean that Mr. Jackson did not commit the acts of which he was accused. Rather, it means that the prosecution did not meet its burden of proving that he did beyond a reasonable doubt. The law likes the word "reasonable." It sounds good, fair, etc. The problem is, nobody really knows what's "reasonable" until the jury renders its verdict.
