Michael Jackson, Elvis and Singing Cowboys are all American Icons

 The Michael Jackson memorial is on TV today, I am sitting here watching and thinking about the difference between a person's public image and what it means to be an icon. Michael was an icon in life and is even a bigger icon now in death. Gone are the questions of his personal legal problems, gone are his money problems, his music now dominates the sales charts after a 4 year slump. Now he is iconic legend. Berry Gordy of Motown Records called him "the greatest entertainer who ever lived...
