NAMES FOR THINGS: Back when he was still a respected entertainer, Michael Jackson used to insist on being called The King of Pop - a stipulation that would sometimes be contractually enshrined, so he's always been aware of the power of titles. So it is that his defence team are trying to insist that the accuser in his kid-fiddling case isn't referred to as a victim. No suggestion has apparently been made for other terms that could be used, but we think 'the boy that Michael Jackson has been charged with getting pissed and touching' has a ring to it.
