What's it like to be a Jackson? That, said singer Marlon Jackson of the noted Jackson clan, is a question he's asked all the time, and he repeated his stock reply. "It's like being a Smith or a Jones or any other average person. . . . We're just like anybody else. But when I say this, people don't believe me. " You can't blame them. It's like saying the Reagans are just plain folks. "I don't feel any different from anybody else," Jackson insisted during a recent interview.

In his final day in Ethiopia, Marlon Jackson was entertained the way a visiting dignitary should be: --by a spear-toting break-dancer, complete with a mini-harem of singing orphans; --by a rock combo, performing "Oh! Susannah" to a reggae beat; --by several hundred well-behaved, well-nourished children who danced, sang and clapped on command at the government's Zerai-Deres village for Ethiopian waifs. Jackson, the 28-year-old brother of Michael, was touched.

The first planeload of food, medicine and clothing bought with royalties from the hit song "We Are the World" left New York today for the famine-stricken people of Ethiopia and Sudan. Marlon Jackson, brother of Michael Jackson, accompanied the relief supplies on a flight that originated in Los Angeles. Among those at Kennedy Airport to see the shipment off was Diana Ross. "We made music," Ross said. "Now we're talking about saving lives and spreading love."
