    Fell on a dock at his summer home.

    Edited because I'm an idiot, though the next two posts will prove that.

    The White House quote regarding the incident was from a fainting episode in 1993, not today.

    Ah. I misread. I thought they were following up the graf about the 1993 incident with that comment, implying that today's was a seizure. My bad.

    Well, maybe I misread it.
    AP just moved that he did suffer a seizure.
    Perhaps it was the same thing that happened in 1993.
  5. A freaking seizure?
    At his age?

    You were correct initially, Left.

    Although, the seizure does not appear to be so isolated now. But the linked story says he's alert and all that.

    Still kind of spooky.

    His first, F_B, would have come at 38.

    Yeah, the story's now calling today's a seizure. I still think you were right, LC, and they were saying that 1993 was supposed to be an isolated incident. Today's kind of changes that.

    And Zeke said it before I could.

    But you were much more eloquent, and looked better doing it.

    That was my first thought when they showed his mug on CNN.

    Spooky story, indeed.

    Do you want to put that in blue, buddy boy?

    Man, what a day.

    From AP:

    Doctors called Monday’s incident “a benign idiopathic seizure,” Arberg said. The White House described the January 1993 episode as an “isolated, idiosyncratic seizure.”
