    The only thing I've found anywhere is from The Drudge Report and one other site that just quotes The Drudge Report.

    I haven't seen anything else anywhere or heard anything on television yet. This sucks bad if it does indeed turn out to be true.

    MSNBC and CNN are saying it in BREAKING NEWS bulletins.

    damn, this is foul...

    if there was an actor/activist who deserved to have the president attend his funeral, it would be mr. reeve, he is a true, blue american hero for the ages.

    he has done so much for so many who had lost hope because of their injuries or birth defects. remember that super bowl commerical where he got up and walked (computer effect, but nevertheless, very powerful and uplifting), that showed so much the promise of the future ,with american innovation in science.

    Yeah. Just found it.

    NEW YORK - Actor Christopher Reeve has died, according to his publicist.

    Reeve, who was recognized worldwide for his onscreen portrayal as the comic book hero, Superman, fell into a coma Saturday after going into cardiac arrest while at his New York home. He was 52.

    Reeve suffered a near-fatal riding accident nine years ago. He became a worldwide advocate for spinal cord research.

    Yes, it is heart breaking, especially one who is so young. I also feel badly for his wife and family. But perhaps, now he has peace and doesn't have to suffer any longer.
