Billy Mays, 50

CNN is reporting that TV pitchman Billy Mays was pronounced dead at his home, according to police in Tampa, Florida.

Mays was well known for his TV commercials and infomercials for various cleaning products such as OxyClean. Ironically, he was a month older than recently deceased pop star Michael Jackson.

Mays had been aboard US Airways Flight 1241 from Philadelphia to Tampa that blew out its front tires as it landed at Tampa International Airport on June 27, the day before his death. None of the 138 passengers and five crew members were reported to be seriously injured immediately following the incident, but several passengers reported having bumps and bruises from falling objects.Mays told a local Tampa TV station that some of the objects "hit me on the head, but I got a hard head." It is unclear whether Mays' death was related to the incident.

think Liam Neesons' wife. Remember she didn't take aid right away after her hit on the head. Thought she felt fine, if I remember correctly

Isn't CDD money for the entire city? Mayor Sam posted a thread about Huizar giving money to Janice Hahn for a center in her district. Then why is money from CDD that is meant for my community in Encino and the city going to
CD 14 with Huizar and Janice Hahn doing it? We're in financial crisis and who says these non profits can get money without public input?
09-1571 CD 14 To Housing, Community and Economic Development Committee Motion (Huizar - Hahn) - That the General Manager of the Community Development Department, or his designee, be authorized to transfer $23,000 in UDAG Miscellaneous Revenue Funds to the Barrio Action Youth and Family Center ($10,000) and el Centro de Ayuda (13,000) respectively

I don't even know who he is. I've never heard the name, Billy Mays and now that I've gone to look at his picture, I've never even seen his face.
