Cokin’s Corner, Tuesday 3/5/19

  • March 5, 2019

Monday was a day off for me as far as any sports wagering is concerned. That gave me an opportunity to catch up on the world that exists outside of the one my life centers around on a mostly everyday basis.

I spent roughly five hours viewing the two-part “Leaving Neverland” documentary on HBO as well as the follow up session conducted by Oprah Winfrey. A grim piece to put it mildly. But also extremely enlightening on a topic that I have very little perspective on, thankfully.

I won’t go the soapbox route, nor will I ridicule those who remain convinced Michael Jackson was not a pedophile. There does appear to be virtually no question that those defending Jackson are nearly all fans of Jackson. Sorry, but if you’re biased going in, your conclusions are likely to reflect that stance.

In any case, I would definitely recommend checking out the four-hour film as well as the Oprah panel convo. It’s pretty compelling stuff, albeit it’s also highly unpleasant material.


I’ll be back in action on Tuesday evening, although as this is being written, no firm decisions have been arrived at yet. Today’s free play therefore falls into the opinion category, and should be treated as such.
