Despite this news flooding the “blog-lines” this morning, I had to post this to show my grief for the king whom I started listening from much younger days. His tunes were simply awesome, and I got hooked to all his albums in no time. I started with his Dangerous album, and backtracked to Bad album and also the Thriller album. I moved forward to Blood on the Dance Floor, HIStory and so on.

Paramedics were called to the singer’s home around midday local time on Thursday after he stopped breathing. He was pronounced dead two hours later after arriving at hospital in full cardiac arrest.

Speaking on behalf of Jackson’s family, his brother, Jermaine, said doctors had tried to resuscitate the star for more than an hour without success.

He added: “The family request that the media please respect our privacy during this tough time.”

“And Allah be with you Michael always. I love you.”

Jackson, who had a history of health problems, had been due to begin a series of comeback concerts in the UK on 13 July.

Ok.. I knew many of us saw this coming. From the moment we had out mobile phones from China, followed  by food, vehicles and probably almost anything else. We also know that stuffs made in China suffers from quality and safety. Think about the excess dangerous chemicals asserted into food products!

The economy is so bad and cheap labour is treasured right now. Even planes are being made in China! I understand that safety and quality is paramount when building planes for passenger in particularly. Even a 0.5% crash-rate is considered disastrous for any airline. Well, Airbus decided to assemble its A320 plane in China.

AIRBUS delivered its first plane assembled outside Europe to its Chinese owner yesterday as the world’s largest plane maker and rival Boeing seek growth in major developing markets to combat weak demand at home. Another 10 planes will be assembled this year in China and production there will be ramped up to four aircraft per month by the end of 2011.

Airbus began assembling the A320 in the port city of Tianjin, near Beijing, in September from parts shipped from Europe.

The plane maker has estimated China will need more than 3,000 large aircraft by 2025, including 180 super-jumbo passenger jets.

One of my friends actually called such planes as “Flying Coffins!” Well.. we can only hope for the best. Will you select your airline/tickets based on where the plane is assembled?
