What an insult to Leary. A limp-wristed little creep like lEonArdO doing his portrayal? Maybe Leonardo can get his butt-buddy Clay Aiken in as a co-star. news://alt.music.michael-jacksonhttp://groups.google.com/group/alt.music.michael-jackson?hl=enhttp://www.childrenhatemj.nethttp://www.fluttergirl.com/michaeljackson/http://www.imagedump.com/index.cgi?pick=get&tp=426184
