AUTHOR: Slublog DATE: 3/10/2005 03:22:00 PM ----- BODY: Talking Point of the Day - I've tried my darndest to ignore the Michael Jackson trial, but it's everywhere - today especially. The defendant didn't show up for court and was almost arrested. Defenders of the former pop star talked about how he gets sick regularly, and the word they all used was "fragile." To a lackey. Think the lawyer was trying some desperate spin control? This couldn't have been good for his defense. --------
