Breaking News?

Something I was thinking since the announcement of the death of Yankee’s owner George Steinbrenner:

Is someone’s death really “breaking news?”  I mean, they’re gonna be dead for a long time now… we could really talk about that at any time, right? 

In fact, tomorrow he will still be dead and I bet we will still be talking about it.  Seems like there isn’t that much to say: heart attack.  80.  dead.  So maybe we could skip talking about it today?
