It is no shame at all to work for money.

Dr. Conrad Murray, the Las Vegas cardiologist and personal physician of the late Michael Jackson, is in hot water. He is at the center of the investigation into Michael Jackson’s tragic death.

The money-troubled doctor saw an opportunity as Jackson’s personal physician to overcome his enormous financial debts. Society has not been very fair about the conclusions of guilt of manslaughter that are being whispered about. It is fair to say that the doctor was negligent, but people have a tendency to ignore Michael Jackson’s own responsibility for his own death.

Any doctor would take the job for $150,000 a month, especially if they had debt estimated to $780,000. The power of money and fame can lead to disaster. Dr. Conrad is guilty by association with Michael Jackson. Unfortunately, he’s paying the price for the other doctors involved in the same malpractice with Michael Jackson. Definitely, Dr. Conrad was an employee under pressure from his own financial problems and a rich drug addict. It was a risky move, but should we blame him for taking that job? As the Ashanti of Ghana say, “It is no shame at all to work for money.”
