A planned TV special on a UK Discovery channel that re-enacts Michael Jackson's autopsy has been criticized by his estate as being "in shockingly bad taste" and a "blind desire to exploit Michael's death." A print ad for the show depicted a corpse on a steel table covered by a sheet, with a hand sticking out revealing Michael's signature white glove. Whether it works as an ad or not I don't know, but I do know that it continues a long tradition of insensitive media exploitation -- much of which Michael certainly brought on himself. But, so as not to dwell on the negative at year's end, and fresh off his first real posthumous release, here's a look at the best of what the King of Pop did while he was still alive. I'll leave out the obvious, moonwalk, which I encourage you to do immediately after reading this list. »
