Kenneth Lay’s death and Wikipedia

I work in a radio station newsroom as you might know, and so we find things out pretty quickly, usually before most other people. So, when Kenneth Lay’s death was announced a few minutes ago I googled him to get some background information about him. No surprise that Wikipedia came up as one of the first results, but what was surprising was that someone had already updated his entry with his death date. I was flabbergasted when I saw it. We found out, only seconds before and already Wikipedia had it. Man, they’re really fast!

Wikipedia calls it an apparent suicide. Some reports now are saying he died of a massive heart attack!
