In Random, Crazy Ish News… Chick-Fil-A PR Exec Dead and Conrad Murray Wants To Meet With Katherine Jackson

I know, those are two dramatically different situations going on, but that’s why this is considered random and crazy ish.

On the first note, in the midst of one of the biggest PR crises to hit Chick-Fil-A in recent years, the company’s vice president of public relations passed away suddenly from a heart attack this morning. Chick-fil-A released a statement saying:

“We are saddened to report the news to you that our dear friend Don Perry, vice president of public relations, passed away suddenly this morning.

“Don was a member of our Chick-fil-A family for nearly 29 years.  He was a well-respected and well-liked media executive in the Atlanta and University of Georgia communities, and we will all miss him.”

“Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.”

Although many factors play a role in one’s risk for a heart attack, it’s hard to not see the stress of defending Chick-Fil-A’s stance against gay marriage—which he had been doing repeatedly lately—as a possible contributing factor here. It’s definitely sad to think his job might have killed him.

On another note, for some reason Conrad Murray thinks that now is a good time for him to have a jail cell chit chat with Katherine Jackson. The doctor widely regarded as the man who killed Michael Jackson told CNN that he heard Katherine is “having a difficult time” (ya think?) and he’d like her to come to his jailhouse for a talk.

“I’ve been told that she has a desire to speak with me before she departs this life,” he said. “Seeing that she is up in age and in questionable health, and the fact that she is the mother of a very dear departed friend, it would give me great pleasure to sit with her one on one and answer any questions she might have.

“I do not want Mrs. Jackson to suffer. She remains as dear to me as my own mother, unbeknownst to her.”

Interesting timing, Dr. Murray. I’m pretty sure Katherine has enough fooolishness going on in her life without adding the complication of meeting with her son’s convicted killer to boot. He’s going to have to hold off on that reunion and he actually ought to be happy to stay as far away from the seemingly wacko Jackos right now anyway.

What do you think about the death of Chick-Fil-A’s exec and Conrad Murray’s request?
