Subject: 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.

That didn't happen in the old days. Where you died is where you died.

In reply to: Funny, the journalistic euphemisms these days. 's message, "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"." on Sunday, November 24, 12:48:45pm

I've noticed it's rare the press will ever report a celeb as "found dead". (NT)Even if EMT find him with 'rigor mortis', they still report it as "found unresponsive". OddSunday, November 24, 01:06:11pm
