    This smells like an Obama diversion... away from his own real life problems with the NSA, EPA, et. al.

    No, I liked James Gandolfini. Not surprised it was a heart attack, he looked liked he gained a lot of weight when I last saw him in Killing Them Softly.

    Maybe it was the freaking prosciutto hanging from the ceiling in his kitchen. He was always fairly heavy set and had the curse if the Italians.

    By the way six, I was just in a deep conversation with one of my brothers as we flew out to Colorado a couple months ago. We have these Italian genes with that same type of build in our family. We lost a lot of family members due to the Italian curse. I'm a health nut in terms of the food I eat, but the way I figure it, once I hit 70 then I'm going to have the prosciut hanging in my kitchen as well as the sausage. I'd rather die like that than be drooling on myself in my 90's.

    2 to 1 you won't say that when you reach 70.

    Sorry man, but I'm seeing it first hand in my family and just don't want to be a burdon on my kids like that.

    you apparently have let what I posted go over your head. Lets just think about this for a moment. I eat extremely healthy, nothing but veggies, fruit, wild game and fish along with exercising regularly. So, I hit 70 and I go on the Italian bad diet and I'm going to die at 70? Really?

    Well it probably didn't help that his past cocaine addiction weaken an already overworked heart. I know a few people who did a lot of coke in their 20s and 30s and died of heart attacks before they reached 45. I think your heart must get weakened when you abuse or do a lot of coke when your young.

    found unconscious on bathroom floor in hotel bathroom - my son is a Firefighter/EMT and says they find many people dead sitting on the throne-says when people are having a low grade heart attack they feel like they need to go to restroom and drop a deuce- when they cannot go they bare down and boom they blow their heart out
