Gosh TMZ what a way to headline these passing away articles, DEAD. These are people you're writing about how about putting it a little more delicately like passes away or just using the word dies instead of DEAD every time you headline your articles about someone. Morons, his family might be reading these.

Heart attacks can take the best of us. In this case, they took the worst

That's crazy. I was just watching him on his show the other day. I wonder if stress contributed to his heart attack because he always seemed pissed off.
