Dr. David A. Start forensic pathologist in Kent County, Michigan, Wes Leonard ruled cause of death of a cardiac arrest due to dilated cardiomyopathy (enlarged heart), the pathology department at the hospital where the medical examiner told CBS News to be working.

Leonard, a star athlete at Fennville High, deceased Thursday. Paramedics performed CPR on the 16-year-old before he was pronounced dead in hospital, Holland Hospital spokeswoman Deb Patterson said.

Leonard's family told CBS News that the 16-year-old had no known previous cardiac disease.

The Right Word: Rage against the media machine

Limbaugh was offended by an article that appeared in Mediaite suggest that he introduce race to a problem in an inappropriate way because of comments he made on a previous show about Attorney General Eric Holder (listen to clip). (Holder objected to the claims of the Ministry of Justice easily went into a voting rights case against members of the New Black Panther Party, because they are black.)

I get up today and I get an email from someone, "Do you realize that you are being attacked for the introduction of race in this story? I said "What? I'm attacked for introducing race into the story?" "Yes, it is Mediaite." So I went Mediaite, and indeed, I, El Rushbo, accused of introducing race, again in a very risky way into the story of Eric Holder to suggest that he does not want anywhere near the Black Panther story because It hurt him, because those are his people. And I'm the one injecting race.

Limbaugh could not understand where Mediaite can be drawn from, thinking he was a racist for suggesting that the Attorney General, who is black, chose not to fully prosecute a case because the suspects were black. He was further hampered by Mediaite claims that this is not the first time Limbaugh was wrong to talk about the race.

You hit the link and go to another story in which they Mediaite a cow, because we learned the abortion rate in New York, Planned Parenthood. I just categorized that Planned Parenthood is for the Klan could never finish. I did not, but that set 'em off. Oh, yes, blew 'em a new one.

Presumably Limbaugh referring to a census report showing that the abortion rate for African-American women in New York about six times the abortion rate for white women, whom he portrayed in that 60% of all African-American babies in New York were unsuccessful (a gross misinterpretation, to say the least).

Meanwhile, the left say and do nothing. In fact, the left to break 60% of black babies, and that's cool. Let me log out and all hell breaks loose. So I point all this and it proves that we conservatives are not allowed to mention a word, we should not talk about it, we can not even register. They can literally sit there and preside over the death of 60% of black babies in the womb through Planned Parenthood and it's none of your business - Limbaugh, your mouth: very racist of you to mention that.

Limbaugh's distortion of the statistics aside, someone on his staff wants to advise him that there is not really a way of injecting the phrase "completion of the work of the Klan" in a sentence without the lasting impression that you are an unrepentant racist.

Oscars 2011 Time Closes in at 8:30 PM

The Oscars 2011 time has finally come. Once the Oscars 2011 time officially arrives at 8:30 pm est, the most anticipated awards show of the year will unveil itself at last. Of course, although there's no question about when the show starts, a big subplot is when it will end. They've done well getting it finished before midnight lately, although there's always the risk of going longer. This is just one of the issues before the Oscars 2011 time, to say nothing of the awards and the host.

Movie fans and pundits have waited months for this day to arrive. However, the buildup for the big night, and the questions around the major categories, are usually more thrilling than the show itself. This year could be no different, especially if things are as predictable as expected.

Well before the Oscars 2011 time got close, most of the major categories were determined. Most of the audience expects a final coronation for Colin Firth, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale and David Fincher, among others. A month ago, they expected The Social Network to walk away with Best Picture, but now The King's Speech has become the inevitable best bet.

The only major races with suspense may be Best Supporting Actress, and Best Picture. Fittingly, Best Supporting Actress is among the night's first awards, although it'll be a three/three-and-a-half hour wait for Best Picture after that. In between, audiences hope not to be lulled to sleep.

But when the Oscars 2011 time comes around, the major questions will surround the hosts, and the show itself. Anne Hathaway and James Franco are a new kind of hosting duty, so viewers wonder what kind of routines they've been given. However, Deadline Hollywood warned that the schedule is likely to be another "snorefest" anyway.

If Hathaway and Franco can't elevate things, and balance out the lack of drama for the awards, it could be a rather long night. But much of the awards season has been predictable and obvious - even the comeback by The King's Speech. Therefore, a boring night to wrap it up would be fitting, albeit very unpopular.
