An official autopsy report released Friday found that cocaine use contributed to the heart disease that suddenly killed TV pitchman Billy Mays in June . . .Cynthia Yockey casually referenced this on her blog, and I was like, "Wow. Who would have expected that?" On the other hand, thinking back on it, I guess Billy did seem a little too keyed-up about the wonders of OxiClean . . .
While heart disease was the primary cause of death, a report released Friday by the medical examiner listed cocaine as a "contributory cause of death."
The medical examiner "concluded that cocaine use caused or contributed to the development of his heart disease, and thereby contributed to his death," the office said in a press release.
The office said Mays last used cocaine in the few days before his death but was not under the influence of the drug when he died. Hillsborough County spokeswoman Lori Hudson said nothing in the toxicology report indicated the frequency of Mays' cocaine use. . . .
BTW, Cynthia called me this afternoon to say she was going to a townhall meeting with Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.).
"What should I ask him?" she said.
"Look, you're well-informed on the issues. Just pay attention to what he says, and what questions other people are asking, and I'm sure you'll think of something good to ask. . . . You're a natural-born troublemaker."
She was in kind of a hurry and said she didn't have time to take a shower before going to the meeting. So I figure if Cardin gives her the run-around, the headline will be:
SENATOR FLEES SWEATY LESBIANI'm anticipating Cynthia's report.
