Death at any age sucks
Sudden death gets more attention than a long drawn out or old age death
The King of Pop had an effect on us all
Emergency call trees do work
My network of informers are so awesome
I need to be on speed dial with David Thomas and/or Fox News to be in the know
My family is so cool
If you need to know something don't rely on your 12 year old
