So, the jury has spoken, then - Michael Jackson is not guilty on all charges; and his supporters outside court have been releasing doves. Wonder if his back will clear up now?

("Not guilty of absolutely everything" was the slightly surprised phrase of the News 24 reporter.)

It's a victory for the shreds of reasonable doubt, then.

Of course, had the verdicts been guilty, things would at least have been easier for Jackson - now he's faced with trying to build some sort of future with a lot more of detail in the public domain about how he chooses to relax, and with a freedom that's the best his money apparently didn't quite run to buying. Let's hope the inevitable Fox News exclusive interview pays well.
