Could Michael Jackson rescue our economy?
Perhaps a modern-day funeral train could be assembled, to carry Michael's remains from city to city. If LA is any indication, thousands would gather along the tracks in those towns as he rolled through, to see his casket and pay their homage. While in town, those same people would no doubt buy a meal, perhaps do some shopping, or even spend the night in the local hotel. What town couldn't used a tourism boost these days? And it might even make train travel fashionable again.
A Michael Jackson "That Was It" tour could bring some much-needed cash to flyover America, so why not? It's not like MJ doesn't have the time to spare.
