From the New York Times, "In the Web World of 24/7 Stress, Writers Blog Till They Drop:"

At the same time, some are starting to wonder if something has gone very wrong. In the last few months, two among their ranks have died suddenly.

I smell a government conspiracy. 10 to 1 odds that the dead bloggers are Ron Paul advocates!

Gosh. Two bloggers die over "a few months". That is obviously far more than one would expect in a population of tens of thousands over "a few months".
I'm closing down my blog right away. That way I will become immortal!
Oof, thanks again, New York Times!
