.As top columnist for the Lunenburg County Bugler I’m not usually one to snark about my fellow journalists. But on the other hand, it’s very easy and there is payment involved.

Have you noticed when the TV or newspaper reports the death of someone, it always says “He passed away at 7:00 am this morning, with his family and friends around his bedside.” Every time! What I’d like to know is:

I'm dead angry!– How come his family knew what time he was going to die, so they could all gather around his bedside?

– Or, had they been standing there for days, impatiently waiting for the old bugger to pop his clogs so they could read the will?

– Or, was there some kind of machine unplugging ceremony involved?
“Are we all here? Right, who wants to flip the switch?”

– Or, do newspapers… lie?
“He passed away at 7:00 am this morning, alone in the washroom with his head jammed down a urinal…” It just doesn’t have the same brevity, does it?

And how come when someone famous dies, we all have to pretend we liked them? “Oooh, I was such a big Michael Jackson fan!” cried my colleague the other day, as she wiped away a tear. “I loved that song he did with Paul McCartney, you know, Ebony and Ivory?

For the record, I only listen to dead musicians. That way I won’t be disappointed when they don’t go on tour.

Oooh, it makes me angry! I’m off to HMV to lick all the Thriller CDs. Toodel-oo!

I suspect the family is right there because they maintain a vigil of security so the hospital staff doesn’t steal his gold crowns or vital organs and sell them on ebay…

Aggh, I’d just forgotten about Michael jackson and you’ve reminded me again! Thanks Eddie!

I hope I have an exciting death. Having my head jammed down a urinal would be a good one. Unlikely, but good.

I get what you’re saying. Maybe these people should all get new families…sounds like the ones they have always bring bad luck.

I don’t like MJ. Never did and I still don’t. Sorry if I offended anyone. Just being honest.

All I know is if I should wake up in the morning and my entire family is standing by my bedside, it will make me mighty nervous.

Well, I suppose they use that line since not many people can handle morbid death details before they had 10 cups of coffee in the morning.

Or the relatives really do have a hand in their death. Or waiting if he’ll have last minute changes to his will.

Why do you have to bring up Jackson? Just when I was starting to forget he ever lived.

Something to say?
