Sudden Death.

The circumstances surrounding Natasha Richardson's death reverberate with all of us. We are reminded that no one can know with certitude how long they will live -- or what will be the conditions under which they die. I understand better now why the ambulance crew checked my head injuries so carefully all the way to the emergency room last June when I did my downtown face plant.

Sudden death is exactly that. Not obvious.
