Yeah, only thing I could find (www-wise) was drudge.
But I did witness it on the CNN Headline News (tv) as I edited

edit:

October 11, 2004
Publicist Wesley Combs tells The Associated Press that actor Chrispopher Reeve died Sunday. He fell into a coma Saturday after going into cardiac arrest while at his New York home. He was 52.

edit 2:

Re: Superman is Dead

Aww man. He was only 52, still much too young.

I wonder how much having been confined to a wheelchair contributed to heart failure. I mean, the guy wasn't overweight, but I suppose genetics plays a big role too.

Bummer.

Edit: From the AP story I read... "Reeve was being treated at Northern Westchester Hospital for a pressure wound, a common complication for people living with paralysis. In the past week, the wound had become severely infected, resulting in a serious systemic infection."

Re: Superman is Dead

Saw this on TV this morning. They were saying he'd outlived the expectations. His injuries took a big toll on his body, aside from the obvious. Don't know much about him but he was always courageous in his interviews.

RIP.

Re: Superman is Dead

Anyone heard the song Superman by The Blanks? I had a friend ironically send it to me recently. Well done quartette. I found a link to them but for some reason it won't play the superman song. I have the song on MP3 however...

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Re: Superman is Dead

By the way, that's the second Superman we have lost. George Reeves was the first..
