Federal marshals seized a grand piano and an aged Rolls-Royce on Thursday from the Encino home of entertainer Michael Jackson's parents to satisfy part of a $1.3-million default judgment. "This is a tempest in a teapot," said Brian Oxman, attorney for Joseph and Katherine Jackson. He said the seizure was illegal because the couple were not served with court papers before the default judgment was obtained. Besides, he said, "the piano belongs to Michael, not his parents.

In the exhaustive and at times exhausting new biography "Untouchable: The Strange Life and Tragic Death of Michael Jackson," journalist Randall Sullivan presents a radical new theory concerning one of the most heavily scrutinized public figures of the last half a century. Namely, that the man revered worldwide as the "King of Pop" could not possibly have been a child molester. The book posits that Jackson resisted sex for all his days and died in 2009 a 50-year-old virgin. To support that tough-to-swallow and even more difficult-to-prove claim, Sullivan takes a two-pronged approach.

One morning in 1990, the phone rang in the home of Macaulay Culkin, the then 9-year-old acting sensation fresh off his star turn in the first "Home Alone" film. Culkin picked up the receiver and discovered a kindred spirit: a 32-year-old man who a couple of decades before had been just like him -- an achingly cute boy with a domineering father and a wildly successful career in show business.

Some fancy folk around town will soon be receiving an invite to attend an art auction to benefit the South African Council of Churches. It's extended by "Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Jackson and Family." The to-do will be at their place. No address is listed. But an RSVP line will result in directions to . . . Michael Jackson's posh Encino estate. Which figures, since Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Jackson are better known as Michael's folks--and "their" home is "his" home.

"The Jacksons--An American Dream" is that rare television biography that sings, though its tune is frequently downbeat. It's a rocking, pulsating, gyrating, bewitching five hours that resonate the angry rhythms behind the joyous music of a dysfunctional family that produced one of the most electrifying entertainers of our time. As most everyone knows, the Jackson Five was ultimately supplanted by the even more glittering and famous Jackson One.

Although I suspect that "The Jacksons: An American Dream" (Nov. 15 and 18, ABC) may have been a whitewashing, I must compliment the casting of the young actors playing the varying sets of brothers. And, the performances of Angela Bassett and Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, as Katherine and Joseph Jackson, are worthy of Emmy nominations. Ronald Smith, Los Angeles

Could lice be the secret to preventing asthma? Research on mice shows that those carrying the most lice had calmer immune systems than uninfested rodents. The finding may have implications for studying the causes of asthma and allergies in people. The study, published in the BioMed Central journal BMC Biology, adds to evidence supporting the so-called hygiene hypothesis, which holds that the rise in asthma and allergies can be linked to hyper-clean living. It was conducted by Joseph Jackson of Britain's University of Nottingham and colleagues, who trapped wild mice and tested the immune systems of those infested or uninfested with the louse Polyplax serrata.
