    But, no reputable news service is advancing this crazy theory. Just some internet loonies.

    Yeah, I think natural causes refers to anything that's not an "unnatural death," usually something either involving another person or animal or something self-inflicted or accidental.

    My FB friend list is a mixed bag of folks. Not a single conservative friend has posted about it. (Perhaps they're busy talking about Breitbart's death in more comfortable places.) My liberal friends, however, have ranged from offering condolences to his family to poking fun at loony right-wing theories to downright celebrating.

    Though I must confess that I did make a quip in a friend's thread about this possibly being the third case in human history of seed-spilling smoting.

    If he really had something on Obama that was ready for release later this year, it would be released regardless of his death. Either his family or a colleague must have access to it. But, of course, there is nothing but now they can claim there was and only his death prevented its release.

    Exactly! That's the first thing I thought of.

    Obama is on such a roll when it comes to eliminating bad guys. I reckon Limbaugh is next. Maybe he'll even lead the Seal team in himself. There's no convincing the paranoid androids otherwise, so might as well feed the insania

    Alternative, more sane/less fun thoughts
    That is what took me to sadness. I have experienced curiosity as a primarily selfish endeavor. It originates in the understanding of the brevity of life, and the desire to see as much of it as possible, from as many angles as possible without doing too much damage to my morality. The opposite of that -- incuriosity, dishonesty, the opportunistic deployment of information -- is darkness. Breitbart died, like all of us will, in darkness. But as a media persona he chose to also live there, and in the process has impelled countless others to throttle themselves into the abyss.

    I have heard it said by some fellow liberals that Breitbart was in fact a good person, that his public persona was not the same as his private. This kind of praise is so broadly true of most controversial public figures as to be meaningless. And it is irrelevant. Breitbart may well have been an excellent father and a great friend but that is not why we are talking about him. We are noting his death because of the impact he had on our politics and our conversation. It must be said that that impact was for the worse. Any talk of his private life, is an attempt to change the subject and avoid discomfiting truths.

    It is wholly appropriate to be sorry that Andrew Breitbart died. But in the relevant business, it is right to be sorry for how he lived.

    He was the heart and soul of "60 Minutes", and made journalism sometimes magical. May he rest in peace.

    And at least a portion of investigative journalism dies with him. Few people out there grilling politicians on relevant issues.
    He was good.

    I just heard dry! So sad. He was a vital part of my life. No one missed "American Bandstand" back in the day. May he RIP.
