Breitbart, RIP - hold the conspiracy theories

Bookmark and Share

As I browse through various websites and email lists today, it's sad to hear people suggest conspiracies regarding the death of Andrew Breitbart.

Yes, he was young, and yes, he made enemies, but it's likely an undetected heart problem claimed him. It happens to high school and college athletes - why not to a man in his early 40s? Death due to a heart problem at that age is, thankfully, unusual, but it's not out of the question. Imaging the worst of people with different political opinions - murder! - is a cancer of the soul.
