Regina Benjamin

President Barack Obama nominated an Alabama country doctor who has three times resurrected her clinic in a fishing village after disasters to be U.S. surgeon general on Monday and help him advocate for healthcare reform.

Dr. Regina Benjamin promised to advocate for Obama’s healthcare agenda as “America’s doctor” if she gets the job as chief public spokesperson on health issues, saying her own family and patients have been victims of the failing U.S. system.

“Through floods and fire and severe want, Regina Benjamin has refused to give up. Her patients have refused to give up,” Obama said in a White House Rose Garden announcement.

U.S. surgeons general in the past have issued influential reports on topics including smoking, AIDS and mental health.

Benjamin said she not only wanted to serve in the traditional role of surgeon general, encouraging healthy habits, but press to make medical care more easily available.

“My hope, if confirmed as surgeon general, is to be America’s doctor, America’s family physician,” she said.

“As we work toward a solution to this healthcare crisis, I promise to communicate directly with the American people to help guide them through whatever changes may come with healthcare reform,” she added.

“I want to ensure that no one, no one falls through the cracks as we improve our healthcare system.”

Benjamin won a MacArthur Foundation “genius” grant in 2008 for founding and nurturing the Bayou La Batre Rural Health Clinic to serve a Gulf Coast fishing community in 1990. It was devastated by Hurricanes Georges in 1998 and Katrina in 2005, and a third time by fire

The father and sister of Michael Jackson both suspect that the entertainer’s June 25 death following cardiac arrest came at the hands of a second party.

Family patriarch Joe Jackson told ABC News Friday he suspected “foul play” in the death of his son, and that he was dumbfounded when he learned his son collapsed at home and was being rushed to the hospital.

“I just couldn’t believe what was happening to Michael. I do believe it was foul play. I do believe that,” he said, without elaborating.

Since Jackson’s death, numerous media reports have surfaced about powerful prescription drugs found by police at Jackson’s home.

“I didn’t know anything about the drugs,” Joe Jackson said. “I didn’t even know the name of them. But I do know that whatever he’d taken was to try to make him rest because he had been working so hard, and that drug was supposed to try and make him relax. But anyway, he didn’t wake up. He never woke up. Michael died in his sleep.” Toxicology reports are pending on the official cause of death.

The New York Post is reporting that the casket containing Michael Jackson, who died June 25 following cardiac arrest, is being temporarily housed in a Forest Lawn crypt belonging to Motown founder Berry Gordy.
The crypt is described as a sparse, empty mausoleum highlighted by a G monogram and located on the same property as the graves for such Hollywood icons as Lucille Ball, Bette Davis, Gene Autry and Sandra Dee, as well as James Bond producer Cubby Broccoli, comic Freddie Prinze and flamboyant entertainer Liberace.

As for Michael’s final resting place, his brother Jermaine and father Joseph reportedly want him buried at the Neverland Ranch, where a prospective museum could generate future income, despite a likely lengthy process to transform the property into a Graceland-like tourist attraction.

But Michael’s mom Katherine and the other siblings are reportedly against a Neverland burial, in keeping with Michael’s desire never to return there after he believed sheriff’s deputies had tainted the property when they sought evidence in his child-molestation case.

“Katherine doesn’t want him at Neverland,” a source tells “She thinks it’s a place of horrible memories. She says Michael wouldn’t want to be there. Part of the family disagrees with her. But Katherine definitely wants to keep Michael’s wishes that he not rest at Neverland.”

Also, LaToya told the Daily Mirror her brother would “absolutely not” be laid to rest at his Neverland Ranch.




That’s So Raven” star Raven-Symoné has been the subject of Web-circulated rumors that claim she is either pregnant, or has already given birth to her first baby – but a rep for the 23-year-old mogul says neither report is true.

“Raven-Symoné is not pregnant nor did she give birth,” her publicist tells

Numerous media outlets have claimed that Raven-Symoné had been hiding a pregnancy, and the stories reached a fevered pitch earlier this week with reports that she had gone on to deliver a healthy baby girl.

Her latest album, the self-titled Raven-Symoné, is in stores now.
