(Video) Robin Williams apparently died of asphyxia due to hanging, Marin County Sheriff´s Lt. Keith Boyd said Tuesday. The final cause will not be certified for several weeks, said Boyd, who also is the county´s Assistant Chief Deputy Coroner Williams´ body was found "slightly suspended in a seated position" with a belt around his neck, Boyd said. The other end of the belt was between a closed door and the door frame, said Boyd, who also is the county´s assistant chief deputy coroner. Williams´ left wrist had cuts when he was found dead in a bedroom at his home, Boyd

CNN, please stop. This is ghoulish. The poor man obviously struggled with depression, and his family is devastated. The media sucks.

Ghoulish is the perfect description! Fox switched over to that press conference and I had to turn it off it was so offensive and demeaning. They were all like a bunch of hyenas picking over the corpse. I hope none of the family members attempt to watch that circus. As an aside, I know he was a very popular, talented actor, but the media has gone way overboard with this wall-to-wall coverage all day long.

Oh, please, go away. If this had been a conservative actor, there would not be a word from any politician, especially a leftist. First time in my life I can remember a president making a "statement" about an actors passing. Please just shut up now and let this family grieve in peace.

They remind me of gossipy people at a cocktail party. "Oh, how I loved him, he made me laugh. The memories, too many to count. What a man. You do know he hung himself, don´t you? Yes! He did. With a belt no less. Oh, what a man, such a talent. I heard he tried to slit his wrists first. That´s what I heard. Sad, sad, sad. What a talent." They love Robin Williams, but they love his suicide even more. Sick.

Like Philip S Hoffman, he is now a saint. The idiot just ruined his family. I found him tiresome and exhausting and it was quite apparent to me that his manic highs had to be accompanied by LOWS.

Maybe he didn´t leave a trust for his kids, either, like the saintly Hoffman, who "didn´t want them to be trust fund kids", but did want to leave them with the hideous memory of his suicide forever. Serenity now.

Local talk radio broke from Rush for the press conference and then spent the next 10 minutes discussing said conference. The female host jumped immediately to the conclusion that asphyxiation was subsequent to a failed attempt at wrist slitting and was obviously proud to inform us of her deductive conlusion.

A sad and fairly common story with the Hollywood/entertainer class . . . there has been reporting on his fear of financial problems could have exacerbated his depression . . . I guess it´s human nature to buy expensive, multiple toys when the money rolls in but I often wonder about the huge costs of paying the nut on multiple mega properties . . . got to believe a lot of "mature actors" take on mediocre jobs just to keep up the real estate.

Yesterday the news was that Williams died of asphyxiation that was self-inflicted. I thought either he had a bag over his head or a rope around his neck. Why couldn´t they release that fact?
The only reason I can come up with is that, like a soap opera, the press wants to build up the suspension.
Posters are right. This is goulish.

Some of us well understand depression and what it can lead one to do. Some of us understand it first hand, and are still here only by the grace of God. I won´t say any more.

It is fine to appreciate his work, there was an extensive body of films he made. His appearances on talk shows were so manic that looking back on them, it is clear that he was not brilliant, he was ill. I fear that depression will become the new "disease to have." In schools we do our best to ignore suicides and deal just with the kids who are disturbed by the event. The last message you want to communicate to disturbed individuals is that if you kill yourself you will become famous. There will be more suicides in the wake of his death and that is sad.

I suspected as much and posted it here yesterday. I always thought that he would completely burn out someday. He was just too manic, frenetic, frantic, hyper to keep going and it looked to me like he would eventually hit a brick wall.

One of my favorite films of his that I haven´t seen mentioned anywhere - Popeye. He was perfect, as was Shelly Long as Olive Oyl.

So I guess the one day grace period has passed so, yeah, never a Robin Williams fan here. I´ve long included three of his movies among my all-time worst list -- "Good Will Hunting", "Good Morning Vietnam" and "Patch Adams".

I never sought out his standup act but the last time I caught some of one, it was some of the tiredest, stalest Bush bashing at a time such tripe was the last gasp for the lamest comedians.

Still, we hear anecdotes now of his generosity and kindness, I believe them. He´s always been damaged goods, he touched a lot of lives and deserved a far better life than he apparently had.

I´ve heard when people are hung, they soil their pants when their bowels let go. Did this happen when Mr. Williams hung himself? Does anyone know? Where can I find out if this happened? I´ve just got to know . . .

The truth is, I don´t watch much TV, and the little I watched today were Spanish stations -- no coverage there, and I´ve read no articles. I wasn´t a Williams fan. His demeanor, I though was irritating.

He was hooked on cocaine and alcohol. No one mentions that to get cocaine, one has to buy from a sleazy dealer while our country tries to combat drugs in the schools. He was buying illegal drugs which are very expensive from what I hear. No wonder he was in debt. He was probably Bi-Polar which means he had manic highs and deep lows. He might have been taking medicine to keep him stable but combining legal drugs with cocaine and alcohol is deadly. Over half the people with bi-polar depression commit suicide. Time to stop the Press.

GOP edge grows in final stretch

With one month until Election Day, Republicans´ chances for retaking the Senate and picking up seats in the House are improving. The GOP has been buoyed by positive public polling, while red-state Democrats are still struggling to find distance from President Obama. There are bright spots and even some unexpected new targets on the map for both parties, but the overall national environment seems to have ticked a bit toward Republicans.The GOP needs to win a net of six seats to retake control of the Senate, and Republicans seem better-positioned to do so now than they did through much of

Obama Unwittingly Makes Best
Case Against Political Speech Laws

President Obama famously derided the Supreme Court over the Citizens United decision in a State of the Union address. Obama’s bashing of that First Amendment decision is also central in the scandal involving Internal Revenue Service targeting of Tea Party applicants for tax-exempt status. Lois Lerner followed Obama’s lead to suppress speech. Thursday, in an address at Northwestern University, however, Obama unwittingly undermined a whole regime of regulation of election-related speech. As reported at The Daily Caller: President Barack Obama gave GOP campaigns and right-wing super PAC’s across the nation fodder to

One would think that Friday’s announcement that the unemployment rate had fallen to its lowest point since Barack Obama took office would be good news for the president. Yet as the unemployment rate has declined, President Obama’s job approval rating has worsened. So it’s not clear how much of an effect modest changes in the economy’s condition will have on his approval ratings. (Snip) The latest unemployment numbers will be the last ones released before the midterm elections, and Mr. Obama is trying to leverage them to his party’s advantage. On Thursday, he spoke at Northwestern University and talked up

Just when you thought you knew all the consequences of the Ebola pandemic, here’s another one: it could affect the supply of chocolate. Of course that doesn’t rise to the seriousness of illness and death, but it does show how much Ebola affects trade and production. An estimated 70% of the world’s cocoa beans come from the West African countries of Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria and Cameroon. Ivory Coast is the world’s largest producer, exporting 37.8% of the world’s cocoa, according to the Wall Street Journal.

"He´ll screw up a bunch," Mr. Obama said. "Eventually we learn, but it takes us a little longer, because we´re not as smart."

A record 92,584,000 Americans 16 and older did not participate in the labor force in September, as the labor force participation rate dropped to 62.7 percent, a level it has not seen in 36 years, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday. Six times in the last twelve months, the participation rate has been as low as 62.8 percent; but September´s 62.7 percent is the lowest since February of 1978. The participation rate is the percentage of the civilian noninstitutional population who participated in the labor force by either having a job or actively seeking one. Those not in the

The Obama administration found itself on defense Friday after former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta criticized the White House for its policies on Iraq, with the State Department and others publicly disputing his claims. Panetta chided the president´s team in his forthcoming memoir, excerpts of which have been published in the media. He alleges the White House didn´t try hard enough to strike a deal with Iraq in 2011 to leave a residual force of U.S. troops behind, in turn opening the door for the region to become a haven for the Islamic State. In newly published excerpts, he also criticized

The dictionary defines nepotism as, “the practice among those with power or influence of favoring relatives or friends, especially by giving them jobs.” It perhaps should come to no surprise to anyone even remotely aware of the ethical scandals permeating Democrats in the State Senate that a new scandal should emerge surrounding untoward hiring practices in the State Senate, and a cover-up by Senate Leadership. (More on that cover-up in a moment.) First I think it is important to recap that the Senate, as an institution, is clearly at an ethical low point.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts.

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola
