    Around 1:30 p.m., this moves on the wire ...

    A couple of hours later ...

    Latest update is he is in critical condition. Police aren't sure if it was an accident or a self-inflicted gunshot.

    How on Earth does the school announce he's dead without absolutely confirming it?

    Michael Jackson is dead. No, he's not. Yes, he is. Wait ...

    Really, AP? "A kill is mandatory." Think you could come up with another way to phrase it for this one? You know, eliminate confusion?

    Sounds like M.O. for all things Southern Miss.

    Elvis died back in 1977. And yet he's alive in every hillbilly grocery store from northern Mississippi to southern Kentucky.

    Sad thing is, some poor SID will probably take the hit for this.

    Do you consider it a fireable offense?

    Sadly, I my first reaction was "wow - someone jumped the gun," then I read the link. Oops.
    Either way (suicide, accident), that's a sad item. Damn.
