A fish out of water makes for a particularly poignant theme, especially if the sea is your very own. Nail by nail, board by board, word by word, song by song, Jackson has built himself a rowboat. One of these days we're going to blink and see it has become a big ol' ark, large enough to encompass everyone smart enough to board. Let's just hope he keeps it anchored in Biscayne Bay.
