“Fidel Castro’s resignation ought to be a period of democratic transition for Cuba..the country must hold free and fair elections to pick a successor after half a century of Communist rule..And I mean free and I mean fair, not these kind of staged elections that the Castro brothers try to foist off as true democracy.”—
“Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighbouring nations.

“The new remixes do absolutely nothing to buttress the album’s legacy. The retooled songs, especially The Girl Is Mine, by will.i.am, and Billie Jean, by West, are unimaginative with generic hip-hop beats and pointless rapping (that would be from will.i.am) added to Jones’ superlative tracks. And Akon’s slowed down version of Wanna Be Startin Somethin sounds as nasally and overly processed as any of his own hits.”—
This is like deciding that suddenly The Mona Lisa needs a “touch up”. I mean it is Thriller, fracking Thriller.
“Thriller's iconic status has been well documented over the years. It remains pop's biggest-selling album with more than 100 million copies sold worldwide. It still sells about 60,000 copies a year. Everything about Thriller — Quincy Jones’ surreal, stylish production; the videos with the Broadway-style choreography; the red leather jacket, glittery glove and socks Jackson sported — forever changed the sound and look of pop.”
