    While I completely agree that any surgery involves risk, this was a post-op issue. The nurse would've been removing the wires on his/her own, like when they remove a central line. These are considered low-risk procedures--but, as with Armstrong, there can be problems.

    The nurses are trained to recognize possible complications, and from the article I don't think any nurse did anything wrong.

    I do think the doctor(s) made the wrong call, initially taking him to the catheterization lab instead of the OR. But even so, I think that in the moment, when the scope of the problem was unknown, they surely believed they were doing the right thing.

    The lawsuit--I agree with you. :)

    The inventor of the label printer and portable keyboard, Bob Olodort, has died after a battle with multiple myeloma.

    He was only 73, which is still young in today's world.

    He sounds like a very interesting man, someone it'd be cool to hang out with and watch the wheels turning in his brain.

    RIP, Bob, and thanks for your innovative products.

    The voice of Disney's Minnie Mouse, Russi Taylor, has died at 75.

    She must've had a blast doing her job! My mom's best friend worked at Disney Studios her whole career, and always told us what a wonderful environment it was. Ms Taylor brought joy to countless people, young and old, around the world in her job.

    RIP...

    Broadway producer/director Hal Prince, of Phantom of the Opera and Cabaret, has died. He was 91.

    Prince was truly a hit-making machine, whose work was recognized by, among other things, 21 Tony Awards.

    Here's to a long, distinguished career that brought pleasure to untold numbers of people.

    Ashley Wagner has added her story in the wake of Mr. Coughlin’s suicide. Really a sad end to his career.

    Saoirse Kennedy Hill, the granddaughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy, was found dead on Thursday afternoon at the Kennedy Compound, according to a law enforcement source and people close to the family. She had battled depression for several years. Her death at 22 is being investigated, but there is no evidence of foul play.

    RIP, Miss Hill. I’m sorry your life ended so early and that you couldn’t beat the beast of depression.

    Ms Hill's family, including grandmother Ethel, must be beside themselves with grief and questions. Losing someone so young to what was surely suicide, is a profound loss.

    RIP, Ms Hill. There was help available; I don't know if you tried it, shunned it, or what, but at least now you can rest in peace.

    Doubt many here will know who he is but Joe Longthorne MBE passed away on Saturday. He was a big singer/impressionist/variety performer in England in the 80's and 90's. He worked hard for charities too .You'll be missed RIP.

    My mind keeps going back to that suffering soul that wrestled the door open and jumped out of a plane at 3500 feet in Madagascar. What a horrible way to die.

    A British 19 year old young lady was in Madagascar on a study trip that was supposed to last six weeks. She was incoherent when she called home and it was decided she would go home after only eight days. The plane was taking her to the airport where she was to catch a flight home when her companion and the pilot fought with her for five minutes to keep her in the plane. She wrestled away from them and jumped to her death somewhere in the savanna. They say that they may never find her body (carnivorous animals). The pilot said she was totally silent when this happened and looked ill when she boarded the plane. It is thought that she had a psychotic reaction to antimalarial drugs. This happened now four days ago. She was a student at Cambridge, her name was Alana Cutland.

    Thanks for the info.

    This article gives a good rundown on what happened.

    Even though they tried their best, but failed, to hold onto her, I'll bet the two people feel terrible guilt. I hope they seek professional help to cope with this tragedy.

    Her parents...I just can't imagine. :( When we sent our daughter off to England as her college graduation gift, it was such a happy and exciting time. No one expects it to end in such a terrible tragedy.

    Author of Beloved and many other works, Toni Morrison, dies at 88.

    Ms Morrison, through her writings, gave voice to subjects often swept under the rug, such as slavery. She touched many lives.

    RIP...

    I had hoped everything would have come out and everyone would have been held accountable, like life and then some in prison. I'm not at upset he's dead, I just feel he should have truly paid for his hideous crimes.

    I agree, but my greatest concern is that by his selfish and cowardly act those who were his accomplices will escape judgment because he won’t be able to provide evidence of their crimes. Guilt by association isn’t enough to convict someone other than in the court of public opinion and there’s little doubt he would have had particularly pointed knowledge of facts necessary to demonstrate guilt (or perhaps innocence?) in many cases. :(

    It never ceases to amaze me when people who've committed heinous crimes against those less powerful than themselves, take the coward's way out rather than face something more powerful than them, the legal system. Shame.
