Here’s the weird item of the week: “America’s Rabbi,” Shmuley Boteach, has a new book out: The Michael Jackson Tapes. It turns out–for those of us who weren’t following either of their careers too closely–that Boteach was Michael Jackson’s “close spiritual guide.” I actually held the book in my hands and opened it today. The subject matter varied from Michael’s days as a Jehovah’s Witness to his hopes that children get to play in heaven. We even get Jacko on Hitler and his boundless love for the Jewish people (ok so I didn’t open the book at random, exactly).
Remember, this is a man who surrounded himself with mannequins.
