And suddenly, guys my age are dropping like flies.

If you're old enough to remember this movie, you get it.


WSJ
"Seth Hamblin, the deputy global head of visuals at The Wall Street Journal, a driving force behind its analytical approach to graphics and a longtime champion of multimedia storytelling online, died Sunday.
Mr. Hamblin, 46 years old, collapsed while running a 5K race in Morristown, N.J., his wife, Tanya Prescott, said Monday. The race was a first for both of them, she said. He took off ahead, and collapsed near the finish line after having a heart attack, Ms. Prescott said."

NYT

"Joseph R. Biden III, the former attorney general of Delaware and the elder son of Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., died on Saturday in Bethesda, Md. He was 46
The cause was brain cancer, his father said.
...
Mr. Biden’s death is a second tragic loss for the vice president, whose first wife, Neilia, and 13-month-old daughter, Naomi, were killed in a car accident in 1972 when the station wagon they were driving in to go Christmas shopping was hit by a tractor-trailer. Beau Biden and his brother, Hunter, were also injured in the crash, but both survived."

WSJ
"David Goldberg, the chief executive of online-questionnaire provider SurveyMonkey and husband of Facebook Inc. Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, died suddenly Friday night. He was 47 years old."
CBS
"The husband of Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg died while on a family vacation in Mexico. Local investigators say it was the result of head trauma after he apparently fell off a treadmill. But CBS News has learned that autopsy results suggest Goldberg had a heart arrhythmia that may have contributed to his death, reports CBSN's Elaine Quijano."
