On the heels of a 5.8-magnitude earthquake on Tuesday, the aftershocks are shaking up East Coast residents. Tuesday’s earthquake was a rare occurrence and was the strongest to hit the area since World War II. The quake shook the densely populated area from Canada to Georgia.

Damages caused by the quake include the the Washington National Cathedral (shown above) and the 555-foot Washington Monument. Tourist attractions at the National Park have been closed indefinitely, which may also delay the dedication services for the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial statue.

The East Coast is now gearing up for hurricane Irene. Several states along the coast are taking precautions and evacuating residents in preparation for the storm. Residents of North Carolina beach town have been asked to evacuate for their own safety as winds upward of 100 mph move up the coast.

As you may know by now, Michael Jackson will be on the December 2007 issue of Ebony Magazine. They are showcasing him 25 years after "Thriller".

I commend him on still trying to be out there after years of controversy and court cases, but I wish the man had stayed out of the plastic surgeon's office.

Here's Micheal Jackson before "Thriller"



Here's Micheal Jackson during "Thriller"

Oh I get it, they've finally seen some pics of a celebrity that weren't air brushed and they couldn't handle it.... let me explain: What you see on TV, in magazines and online is a bunch of lighting, air brushing and hair & make up trickery. There, carry on please.
