Gable Unhappy With Jackson Cemetery Plans

The grandson of CLARK GABLE is fighting RANDY JACKSON's plans to allow fans into the cemetery where MICHAEL JACKSON is interred on the first anniversary of the singer's death.
The King of Pop's younger brother Randy is asking officials to permit mourners to visit the star's tomb in a private section of Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California, on 25 June (10).
In a series of posts on his Twitter.com page, he tells fans, "I'm meeting with Forest Lawn and the City of Glendale. Although they have strict rules, I'll do my best 2 (to) see if fans can visit & pay their respects beyond the gates of Forest Lawn, on the 25th."
But the plans have upset the family of screen legend Gable, who is buried in a nearby plot, as they want access to be restricted to relatives.
The Gone With The Wind star's grandson, Clark Gable III, tells TMZ.com the mausoleum "wouldn't be as sacred" if fans are allowed inside.
But author Ronald J. Fields, whose grandfather was funnyman W.C. Fields, is backing Jackson's plans, insisting members of the public should be allowed to pay their respects as it would be "moving to them".

Movie stars would not be movie stars if it wasn't for the fans......therefore, not allowing fans to visit their person they chose to go visit is wrong, in this case it is MICHAEL JACKSON and it doesn't make any difference, fans should be allowed to visit MICHAEL JACKSON........The person Gable had fans at one time and they allowed fans to see him..........so what's the difference?????Is it because this Gable relative is discriminating against MICHAEL JACKSON BECAUSE OF HIS RACE RACE???????????IT SURE SOUNDS LIKE IT........WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE!!!!!!!!!!!THIS IS THE YEAR 2010.........GET WITH THE PROGRAM..........

I agree. I think it's disrespectful to open it up to the public, even for a day. There are others interred there and I'm sure their families choose this place because of it's privacy and quiet. Also, no-one should be filed past Michael in such a way. It's disrespectful to Michael. He was laid there to prevent this sort of thing happening. Randy is out of his mind even suggesting such a thing.

More and more it is gonna come out that also the Jackson family is standing in line to get a slice of the cake. First they are getting all the support of all the neurotic MJ fans. And now one by one the familymembers show how neurotic they are themselves. Randy should let the late Michael go. For he is not around anymore. The fans should let all of this go. For this is gonna go on forever. This is samsara. The cycle of oncontrolled rebirth. This is the flame that it gonna go on and on and on. Where everybody thinks that doing this or doing that or saying this or sayning that is gonna make themselves happy. And if they are thinking that they are going to make somebody else happy. Most of the time it is because there is something to get wich make themselves better. With money, fame or something else to feed their ego. You won't find permanent happiness in samsara. It is all an illusion. Let go and you will find permanent spiritual happiness inside yourself. Michael is dead. Randy should let it go. Michael can't look inside Randy. In this life Randy is the only one who can look inside himself. To find permanent spiritual happiness.Ohm tare tutare tare. Ohm tare tutare tare. Ohm tare tutare tare. Ohm tare tutare tare. Ohm mani padme hum. Ohm mani padme hum. Ohm mani padme hum. Shiddhi, shiddi, siddhi, shiddhi.Namaste.

What's so wrong with that as long as its done in an orderly fashion, like they do for the presidents who pass, I don't think CG would mind it would be like they were paying homage to him too...being so close...just as long as they sat y were they are suppose too...I'd love to visit...but I live in Fla. & I'll pay my respects & love for Michael on his page...God Bless You Michael RIP love for your children....then they can hold a private service for family if that happens too...to see what the fans left him & how they loved him...he is greatly missed...Luv ya MJ

They arent there to be disrepectufl for see that other guy...Its one day a year. MJ fans fly in from all over the world spending Thousands just to pay respect...I think it should be aloud just for this day. No harm, and yes it still will be sacred. What people dont understand is MJ has the most peaceful fans of them all! They all want to help spread HIS message of LOVE and PEACE.
