I stopped watching him after he snapped on Glenn beck at a theater calling him Satan in front of Glenns kids. But my condolences go out to his family as they do not deserve such an early loss. And people make mistakes. He was too young. But hopefully he has changed since that gaff. Or he won't like where he is tonight.

This guy does an impression of Tony Soprano (as well as other people) that is spot on - I love his videos. If you have a minute - check him out. It is definitely NSFW due to language though.

Police are looking for this "person of interest" in Gandolfini's death.

Hmmm. Seems a tough post, perhaps a little tacky, considering he just passed away.

Considering this society is pretty ****ed up at how they look at people. I mean a morbidly obese man who was hell on his own wife and rude to lots of people, not to mention glorified the mafia and played a character who beat his wife, killed people, had affairs and was total scum and people are so upset shows me exactly how this society thinks.

For once I would like to hear the names and faces of our fallen soldiers, Firefighters, Or the social worker who helped kids get on the right path, or community leader who helped many people. But our praise of celebrity status is almost disgusting that Shep Smith basically did a eulogy for him for 5 minutes on his show. Hannity has co stars on the phone chiming in 10 minutes. I mean there is better news. 1000's of people die every day. This guy was just one and didn't do anything to deserve such widespread coverage. He will always be remember as he was in his mob role to the masses.

I do feel for his family as they didn't deserve it as neither did JG. So I'm not trying to be morbid or rude about the guys death. I just think its a little undoing for our society.

He was an actor - what difference does it make what kind of person his character was? He was also a well-known name - that's why you hear about it. Look at the coverage Whitney Houston got - she sang songs and was a user and a crack addict, but she was glorified in the media. They do mention firefighters, police and soldiers - usually only locally because no one else is interested in what happened to John Smith - they have no personal connection. Celebrities get mention because there are a lot of people interested and it gets ratings, which is important for a business, which is all the news is anymore. I NEVER watch the news. It is always biased and bothers me to watch their stupid antics. I'm not disputing what has happened to society - we are on a downward spiral and it's not slowing any time soon. I don't know anything or care about James Gandofini's personal life - I enjoyed his performances in the things I have seen him in - buy who cares if he was obese or rude? Has that had a negative effect on you in any way? Why jump in to bash him now?

Where on here are people "so upset"? It is sad because I enjoyed his performances, but I would be "upset" if my dog died. I'm not upset because an actor died.

You're right, My rant was a bit biased. I just am tired of hearing about these celebrities. Its all about ratings. You are spot on. BTW I was just as disgusted with the reporting of Whitney Houston as I am this guy.

The thing I don't like about this guy is in his real life he was an *******. Yet they make him out to be this great guy. Its a load of crap. I probably shouldn't have commented on his weight as it just invalidates my argument. But I would have said crack head if he was a crackhead I guess. I have no filter.

I don't really know anything about most celebrities or care about their personal lives. Kardashians just go to show that a lot of people do (for some unknown reason?). They are predicting $5 million for a shot of her stupid baby. Beiber is another one - I'd like to punch him in the throat just for fun. I'm tired of hearing about him and his Bad-Azz self. There are a few I'd like to meet because I think they'd be cool to hang out with (Mike Rowe, Jay Leno in his garage, Jeff Gordon, Chip Foose, Anthony Cumia) but for the most part, I wouldn't cross the street to meet most "celebrities" and I'm not an autograph guy. I just don't care enough.

Just saw this - "Wounded Warrior Project is shocked and saddened to learn of the sudden passing of James Gandolfini. While many people knew James for his lead role as Tony Soprano on the iconic HBO television series, The Sopranos, we at WWP knew him as a man passionate about serving and honoring wounded veterans. James lent his time and talent to efforts including the documentary films, Alive Day Memories and Wartorn and most recently supported Wounded Warrior Project through a campaign highlighting the struggles and sacrifices of this generation of injured service members. These public efforts were only part of his commitment; he gave so much more behind the scenes and for that we are forever grateful. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and those that knew and loved him."

Anyone who supports the Wounded Warrior Project is good in my book. All donations when our son died went to them. They are a great organization and if anyone deserves your support and sympathy, it is wounded servicemen and women.

I like what they do for the soldiers no doubt. But if WWP won't take money from our churches fundraiser. Then my money won't go there.

Apparently they won't accept donations generated from religious fund raising events. However, if your an atheist your dough is welcome.

Glen Beck is probably not satan, but he is a wacko nut job richly deserving of any ridicule received. Definitely not a gaffe.

In front of his family. It was very rude and a true showing of his character. And it was only one instance.

FlyNavy, explain why 90% of what GB says true. Show me one thing that's not. When your first to the table, it's hard for people not to think your nutty. But he is almost always right. Fair and balanced. He was all over Bush just as bad as he is Obama.

Funny that's not the first time someone won't or can't tell me exactly what GB has said they don't agree with. It's ok. I don't need you to. I'm very well informed because of his desire to tell the truth whether or not it makes him popular or gets him ratings.

Not to mention The Blaze is the fastest growing news organization on earth and is quickly getting picked up by dish network and some cable stations. But hey all of his millions of viewers must be crazy too. Like me
