Conservative journalist and activist Andrew Breitbart died early Thursday morning in Los Angeles at the age of 43, says a report from Big Journalism, one of Breitbart’s websites.
“Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles,” writes Big Journalism writer Larry Solov. “We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.”

That wasn't nice! BEHAVE YOURSELF!
I'd be more sympathetic if people here didn't act like they knew what they were saying when they were saying something very much wrong.

Woah.  I saw this and went "WTF?!"  I wonder how he died.  Well that's unfortunate.

I didn't like the guy, but at the same time I find this news kinda sad.  I suppose this reminds us that anyone can die at any time for any reason, or no discernible reason at all.

Wow. That's really surprising. I wonder if he had a heart attack in his sleep or something, that's the only reason I can think of that is both "natural causes" and "able to happen at 43." Poor guy.

And cue the conspiracy theorists in 5...4...

Natural causes at 43 years old?  Is that what we're coming to view what was likely a heart attack or possibly even a stroke as at that age?  :-/

But yeah, already seeing conspiracy theories pop up.  Not particularly good ones, but I guess that's the natural reaction some people have.

I feel like I should be at least a little sad.

But he really was a horrible person who destroyed other's lives for no other reason then it was expedient to his goals.  I can think of no good in the world he did other then serve as an example of how bankrupt morally and intellectually conservatism in this country has become.

So I will settle for not out right rejoicing at his passing.

On one hand, I'm one of those whose heart goes out to his family and friends.

On the other, there's this:

EDIT: FOX is saying he's had heart issues.

I'm kinda stunned about this... then I remember Eddie Guerrero died at... what was it... 38?
