    Neverland closed?

    <<LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Michael Jackson was ordered to shut down his Neverland Valley Ranch on Thursday by California authorities who have fined the pop star $169,000 for failing to pay his employees or maintain proper insurance.

    Jackson's sprawling ranch in the central California foothills was closed, at least temporarily, by an agent of the State Labor Commissioner after the office discovered that his worker's compensation policy had lapsed in January.
    "We went out there this morning and issued a stop order to the security guard at the front gate," state Department of Industrial Relations spokesman Dean Fryer told Reuters. "We asked to be escorted in to meet management, but we were refused and turned away, so we gave the order to (the guard)."

    Good. There's only one Neverland, and Peter lives there.

    Who else wants to see that place turned into a tourist trap? "Come see where the biggest freak of all time lived...."

    Just me?

    At least now maybe all the animals and critters he keeps on the property will be taken to zoos and places where they will be lovingly and properly cared for.

    He was ok when he was about 12, but his life pretty much when downhill from there. I almost feel sorry for him, since there is a lot of his past that he had no control over, but honestly... take contol of your life and stop being such a total freak of nature.

    Am I the only one who never realized just how much the entrance looks like Main St. station? Everytime I see it now, I cringe and feel all sick.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Couldn't happen to a nicer guy ....LOL. I can't wait till he is compleatly uterly broke. He has deserved this so much. I do feel bad for the employees though. They deserve better than this. The man is a sick freak and needs help.
