    Wow, didn't see that coming. Won't change my perception of the guy much, I liked his personality and his "just folks" attitude when dealing with others. No one's perfect, but that's a shame overall.


    TAMPA, Fla. — DEVELOPING: An autopsy report says cocaine contributed to the death of TV pitchman Billy Mays.

    The 50-year bearded TV personality died of a heart attack in his sleep. His wife found him unresponsive June 28 at their condo in Tampa, Fla.

    Yeah, people get addicted to stuff all the time, I didn't know that cocaine hurt your heart so bad though, it's pretty horrible stuff.
