What Do We Call These People?

Haven't highlighted a Hero for a while (damn Chinamen stopped dropping dead playing WoW).

A WHITE House correspondent tweeted today that he was having a heart attack - and continued to post updates even as medics attended to him.

Tommy Christopher, who writes for mediate.com, posted the first message on Twitter overnight.

"I gotta be me. Livetweeting my heart attack. Beat that!" he wrote.

He followed with: "Paramedics think I will live. Gonna get a cardiac cat. Jeez, I'm old. This is depressing," referencing a viral video where a cat gives a cardiac massage to another cat that has been hit by a car.

Christopher continued to tweet about his condition for the next hour.

"This is not like the movies. Most deadpan heart attack evar," he wrote. "Still hurts even after the morphine."

Finally the reporter, whose condition was unknown, tweeted: "Ok, taking a break now."
