From Oktyabrskoye to Jackson

Let's file this under Odd Michael Jackson News, if that's not too redundant:

Residents of a Ukrainian village want to rename it after the late pop superstar Michael Jackson, a lawmaker who represents the village told AFP on Wednesday.

Oleg Kislitsyn, a deputy in the regional parliament, said villagers in Oktyabrskoye, located in the Zaporizhia region in the country's southeast, had approached him with a proposal to rename the village "Jackson".

At least it will be easier to pronounce.
