In non-Miami related musical news, the very famous guitarist Buckethead has posted a wonderful tribute song to the memory of Michael Jackson. Since I only really ever read music news on this blog, I hadn't really heard anything about MJ. An extensive Google search turned up nothing. If anybody has heard anything about him being sick or dying recently, please forward that information to me.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
