    Infomercial king Billy Mays dies - Foxnews.com

    Fox news website has a banner that says Billy Mays, the loudvoiced pitchman for so many products has died. No further details are posted yet.

    Billy was a native of Pittsburgh, PA - a hometown boy. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette recently interviewed him. He apparently had amassed quite a fortune from hawking items in his infomercials.

    RIP, Billy.

    Here's a link to the abovementioned article, which appeared in April:

    Wow. He's been doing the talk show circuit with another infomercial guy. They were on the Tonight Show that I had taped this week to catch whatever tribute the show did for Ed McMahon.

    "There before the Grace of God go I"....

    Honestly, I find the last 10 days to be a wake up call. It's not about who we are or the status living we made, have had. It is about being human and we should never be so arrogant to believe it will not be us tomorrow.

    Live, laugh, and love much. It's the gift we all should embrace more dearly. Every moment of every breath we take....

    They are saying in the comment section he may have hit his head when he was on a plane that landed in Tampa yesterday. The planes front tires blew out when it landed.

    This is just becoming eerie.
    You won't cry for my absence, I know -
    You forgot me long ago. Am I that unimportant...?
    Am I so insignificant...? Isn't something missing?
    Isn't someone missing me?

    And Walter Cronkite. What a rough week.

    Man, he was also only 50. RIP Billy. May God be with his family.

    something is odd. The comment section for the link I gave was removed. They don't normally do that unless they are commenting nasty things about a person. The comments I saw were nothing like that.
