All speculation, but with this much interest (Google Mark Haines Cause of Death) it will come out soon. To me it seems very unlikely that some unremarkable sort of sudden death like MI or stroke was found. Every rock star, movie actor, TV small or large presence the cause of death eventually comes out, and it will in Mark's case too.

Has it been mentioned that he got a post? If not, why not, since an apparently health man died at home without any call to 911 or trip to the hospital?

Was he alone? Was his wife or some other person present? Does he have a housekeeper?

As far as does it matter, what is modern media saturated life other than guiltfree voyeurism?


Ha

Enjoyed watching Mark myself, very unfortunate. It is very unusual that the cause or "reported cause" of death was not mentioned in articles. Even though he was a public person, he might have been a private person. The answer could be simply his wishes were to never release anything because he felt his health to be a private issue.

Some of the CNBC financial commentators on Wednesday morning said that Haines in fact had health issues that he mostly kept mum about, including a back problem--that being one reason he seldom came down to the trading floor to hang with his pals like he used to do in older days. But still...

Being a public person, I think the public has some right to know, if nothing more than a courtesy. Did he have a heart attack, blow his brains out, die in the saddle, I would like to know. I like and respected the guy and would like to know how he died.

Mark smoked and had a dreadful diet. Some of the combinations are hard to believe, for example cheetos and ketchup, what a waste of ketchup!

I was listening to Larry Kudlow's radio show today and Larry said he died of a heart attack.

Cheetos! I love Cheetos. Always have, since I was a wee kid. Especially after putting a big bag of 'em in the fridge to cool. Cold Cheetos! Yum!

But, lately--as I've grown older and tried to figure out what calories, fat, and other stuff I ingest into my stomach--I've learned that Cheetos are heavy on calories. Damn!

On the "Tearful Goodbye" clip posted earlier, Erin indicated to Mark "I know you'll be changing the types of foods you eat soon".
