Subject: It's kind of odd to me that nowadays, the media reports the dead as "found unresponsive (at his home)"? In old newspaper obits, they just printed the deceased was "found dead in his home". Even if the guy was found cold, stiff as a board in his home, they will report "was pronounced dead at the hospital".

Funny, the journalistic euphemisms these days.

If you find someone unresponsive your first instinct is usually to call an ambulance. In this day and age, once you call 911 the paramedics will arrive and try to revive you even if you've been down awhile. (NT)That didn't happen in the old days. Where you died is where you died.Sunday, November 24, 12:56:38pm
Harry Morton came from a long line of restauranteurs; his father, Peter is the co-founder of Hard Rock Cafe and Hotels, and his grandfather, Arnie Morton (1922-2005), founded famed Mortonís The Steakhouse. (NT)And Peter's twin sister Pam Morton is the general manager of the Mortonís The Steakhouse, w/other grandchildren in the business nationwide.Sunday, November 24, 01:00:13pm
