Michael Petrelis submitted a Freedom of Information Act to the FBI for any records in their archive about Michael Jackson.
I expected the agency would reply saying they didn't locate any such records, or that there were only a handful on pages on the late entertainer. I was wrong. A letter from the FBI yesterday informs me they've located close to 600 pages on him. As I've learned from years of filing these sort of FOIAs, it's going to be a while before anything is released, and, when pages are eventually provided to me, they could be quite mundane.I'll be interested to see what they contain, if only for snoopy, gossippy, kitsch value.
