Marilyn True = Michael Jackson?

For 15 years, Michael Jackson was a punchline. Now he's a god. Next in line for rehabilitation: Marilyn True? The ex-Getty curator of antiquities has been standing trial in Rome for about four hundred years now. But like Michael Jackson, True has hardcore fans whose affection represents (take your pick) denial or acceptance of some uncomfortable truths.
The Villa may have been J. Paul Getty's Neverland Ranch, but True devised its current incarnation, everything from the theater series to loan exhibitions to the new acquisitions policy. Courtesy of the Wells Family, the Villa's herb garden now displays this walk-of-fame-like tribute to Italy's most wanted.
