    I wonder who will take his place, perhaps Sean Hannity.

    It's funny when I see liberal types act as if this is something inherent to urban living, when in many European nations (e.g. Germany), the worst cities have a murder rate only ~2 times higher than the national average, unlike the USA where it's more like 10 times higher. Not to mention that there are American cities that have low murder rates, e.g. San Diego, but they also have a history of Republican representation and low percentages of black population (which is basically the best predictor of an area's violent crime rate).

    Trump is apparently OKing an arms deal to Saudi Arabia. Lookin more like Hillary every day, minus the SCOTUS appointment and appointments of generals. I would say I am disappoint but you'd have to expect more first.

    ...and the routinely denying obvious facts, insulting people, baselessly accusing rivals of criminal activity...

    Shocked the shit out of me. You expect people like Kurt and Layne and Scott Weiland to go early but he didn't seem like the hopeless addict type. I fucking idolised that band back in the day.

    Well when someone dies suddenly like that it's usually either suicide, accidental overdose, or heart problems. Assuming the latter two aren't the case in this instance. :(

    Yeah, because your relationship with your anxious spouse is totes the same as your relationship with some other person.

    Non-heart related clot-caused deaths are fairly uncommon though.
