Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor has allowed television cameras to film the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, who was charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of pop superstar Michael Jackson. Judge Pastor also moved the trial to March 24, which lawyers on both sides estimate will last about six weeks.
Murray pleaded not guilty last year, and is currently free on bail. The involuntary manslaughter charge alleges Murray “did unlawfully and without malice kill Michael Joseph Jackson”. In fact, Dr. Murray claimed Jackson killed himself with the fatal dose of the powerful anesthetic Propofol. If convicted, Dr. Murray faces up to four years in prison.

“Animals should be treated the same way as you would a kid. Would you want someone just to walk up and skin your kid? Hell no!” [Source]
Actress Tisha Campbell Suffering From Lung Illness
We have learned that Tisha Campbell-Martin, (also known as Gina on the comedy TV series ‘Martin’), has been diagnosed with Stage 2 sarcoidosis. This disease is the same illness that took the life of comedian Bernie Mac about two years ago. Sarcoidosis is known to attack the lungs, skin and/or lymph nodes but can inflame and affect any organ in the body. Unfortunately, death can occur when complications arise in the lungs, heart, or brain. [Source]
