Rabbi Dov Fischer on Michael Jackson on National Review Online:
"In 1993, after law school, we drove from California to Kentucky, where I served a year's clerkship for an appeals-court judge. En route, we listened to the car radio and, for the first time, I heard the pop music to which my children were subjected. I was shocked--absolutely shocked. So we moved the family to country music. Yes, country music includes lyrics about bars and drinking. But they also speak about mama and family--even about God. I would rather that my pre-adolescent children sing Garth Brooks's 'Unanswered Prayers' than Britney Spears's latest panting and moaning."
