Michael Jackson RIP- Washington DC Photo

Based on all of the news accounts, it looks like Michael Jackson has died. The gifted and sometimes wacky "King of Pop" will be missed.

Here's a photo of Michael Jackson from 1984 when he visited the White House in Washington DC.

His 1982 album "Thriller"still remains the biggest-selling album of all time, with more than 26 million copies.

We should all wear a white glove to work tomorrow in honor of the impact he had on the music industry.

Thanks for the memories Michael.
