Default Good Lord.. Billy Mays found dead this morning?

God must be collecting some souls this week. Can you imagine the waiting room in front of the Pearly Gates. Billy Mays is the pitchman who does those OxyClean commercials. He was 50 yrs old.

Default pitchman Billy Mays found dead

TAMPA, Fla. Billy Mays, the burly, bearded television pitchman whose boisterous hawking of products such as Orange Glo and OxiClean made him a pop-culture icon, has died. He was 50.
Tampa police said Mays was found unresponsive by his wife Sunday morning. A fire rescue crew pronounced him dead at 7:45 a.m.
There were no signs of a break-in, and investigators do not suspect foul play, said Lt. Brian Dugan of the Tampa Police Department, who wouldn't answer any more questions about how Mays' body was found because of the ongoing investigation. The coroner's office expects to have an autopsy done by Monday afternoon.
Mays' wife, Deborah Mays, told investigators that her husband had complained he didn't feel well before he went to bed some time after 10 p.m. Saturday night, Tampa police spokeswoman Laura McElroy said.
"Although Billy lived a public life, we don't anticipate making any public statements over the next couple of days," Deborah Mays said in a statement Sunday. "Our family asks that you respect our privacy during these difficult times."

what slays me is that the body is barely cold and already someone updated wikipedia:

Mays was found unresponsive by his wife in his Odessa, Florida, home on the morning of June 28, 2009. He was then pronounced dead at 7:45 am, appearing to have died sometime overnight.[2][3][15] The Associated Press reported that there were no indications that the house had been broken into, and that police did not suspect foul play.[15]

On June 27, Mays had been aboard a US Airways flight that blew out its front tires and Mays told a local Tampa television station that some of the objects "hit me on the head, but I got a hard head." It is unclear whether Mays' death was related to the incident, but his wife noted that he felt unwell when he went to bed on the night he died.

There was a segment this morning on Sunday Morning on how technology has changed the way we learn about current events.
Used to be the facts were gathered and then a reporter or anchor would announce.
