Jacksons reunite?

With band reunions happening every thirteen seconds, you might as well just pluck names out the air since, mostly, sooner or later any band will recoalesce. That's probably why Yahoo is happy to report there might be a Jackson 5 reunion.

We, however, have our doubts:

Leonard Rowe promoted Michael Jackson's Off The Wall tour the late '70s/early '80s. He has now met with the Jacksons to discuss the possibility of a reunion tour in 2008.

Rowe told Access Atlanta: "His brothers are ready. Janet is ready. But the motor of that car that makes the car run, isn't just yet."

Leaving aside the clunking automobile metaphor - Randy and Tito, presumably, are the running boards and Jermaine would be the sunroof? - why would Janet be involved in a Jackson 5 reunion, given that it was a boys-only sort of band?
