Which will affect the lives of Americans more deeply: Michael Jackson’s passing, or the House passing a major tax and regulatory regime? Just asking. Rick Sincere says: July 8, 2009 2:55 pm at 2:55 pm Sorry — I should have said “93 percent of its broadcast time in the two days following Michael Jackson’s death to that story alone…” Always proofread before hitting “submit comment”.
