    Now imagine those people signing the petition becoming fossils and then fuel.

    Now that would turn them into useful.

    Jacko was in the right place in the right time singing the right songs.
    I'm not a fan but I cant help but respect his musicality.
    Much like Hendrix-I'm not a fan but I have to respect his guitar playing.

    What's that got to do with anything. It's a Peace Prize, what has MJ done to help with world peace on any level? And don't tell me his music touches people's hearts or I'll be sick.

    Hey its a piece prize not a peace prize, brainiac.

    And yes his music did touch peoples hearts. Not mine ,but others hearts.
    If you are going to tell me that MJ's music did not peoples hearts , you are denegrating music, in general.
    Music is powerful , and though anyone at the top is open to open-slather criticism, I reckon MJ's music has contributed to peace.

    I'm not joking. It says 'piece' not 'peace'
    I know I'm just being silly here but I like to defend music in all its forms..
    And if that leads to a peace prize , cool. Why is there a problem with that?

    i don't think Jacko did anything much for world peace, but i don't think it matters. after all, previous winners of the prize include Henry Kissinger and Yasser Arafat.

    you can defend his music all you want but still, he hasn't done anything for world peace, nothing that would deserve a nobel peace prize.
