Iowans reject the "King of Pop"
From the DesMoines Register

The Iowa State Fair's annual butter sculptures will not feature a moonwalking Michael Jackson.The fair had planned to include Jackson in a buttery display celebrating the lunar landing in 1969, but word of their plans prompted complaints to fair officials. They responded by putting the issue to a seven-day online vote.The
result released Friday wasn't close — with more than 100,000 votes, Jackson lost
65 percent to 35 percent.
