According to Wikipedia, he was born in Detroit, making him one of few Americans who could call moving to Mississippi a "step up."

I enjoyed his work in "The Gods Must be Crazy".

He was also apparently dedicated to improving the city as well...

So? An American mayor dies every day. There are hundreds of thousands of them. I've never even heard this guy's name before. The NEWS tag is supposed to be for when something is super-important and there is no time to decide on a proper adjective.

No, you made a mistake. The newslash tag exists to lure unsuspecting submitters into a trap, so they can be banned for its abuse.

They havent listed Cause of death, so it must be embarrassing. Auto-erotic or some such.

He never got over being accused of murder by Amanda Knox, I guess. :(

It mentioned in the article that he referred to himself as a cancer survivor. I get the impression that said cancer reared its ugly head.

 Sad part is his father named him on his deathbed CHOKWE LUMumba..... (trans: I'm choking muthafarka!)

I've been to Jackson before. I still think that's a debatable argument to make.

Apparently you never watch CNN. No doubt they will release "breaking news" alerts on Sunday night when the Oscar is awarded for Makeup and Hairstyling.

This so much - he was the scary black man all the conservatives see in Obama. And he was pretty promising, too. Sad he didn't live long enough to succeed and REALLY scare people.

Now if only New Yorkers would have voted for the Rent is 2 Damn High party. I wish we would have some people dedicated to fixing real issues get into office.

I know. I didn't think I'd get into it because I thought it was just going to be Tosh 1.0 but with tweets (and I can't stand Tosh). But I decided to catch it one night and found it to be a funny program and the host does make it entertaining.

strangeluck: *checks story* Wow, really his name.


Not his real name. He is Edwin Taliaferro from the quite northern state of Michigan. Even so, healthcare in Mississippi has him being the second mayor of Jackson to die in office in five years. He would have died even worse if Mississippi had been foolish enough to implement 0bamacare.

Did anyone else notice this?

http://www.wapt.com/news/national/police-woman-hides-stolen-cash-in- rear/21778016

Black told responding officers she stole the money because Gulley was going to kick her out, and she needed to find another place to live, WBIR reported.
She said she tried to get the cash out "with a toilet brush and tongs," but to no avail, and had to be taken to a local hospital with severe bleeding.

It's always hard to know just what the joke is, and I am often wrong. But indeed, I believe this is the joke.
