    When a soap opera attitude overtakes a news story, this happens. Unfortunate.

    He died at about 10:20am EST this morning. So less than an hour ago.

    You could say that the Onward editor was sacked for "jumping the coffin" or else "premature scoop ejaculation" .

    Jerry Sandusky has asked to be alone with his old buddy Joe for awhile so he can pay his last respects.

    After NOT looking at the date and taking Deane's advice (which this will be the ONLY time EVER) I deleted my post....

  11. >>>"PAUL!!

    He's FUCKING DEAD!!!!!!!"<<<

    Trixter, look at the date on Paul's post. He wasn't dead, contrary to erroneous reports. Paul's headline was correct when it was posted.
