Something random regarding Greg Giraldo. Don't know if anyone else noticed, but I usually go to CNN.com daily for news, and on the day Greg died there was no mention of his passing at all. I searched their site and nothing.

It was in practically every outlet except CNN. I thought that was a weirdly obvious ommision. I know Greg wasn't HUGE, but he was witty, funny and, if you looked, a conflicted soul. I enjoyed his work and shocked at the news of his death. It was just so weird the random B celebreties CNN would post but not one thing about Greg....RIP, guess he wouldn't care if they did mention him, but those who enjoyed his humor certainly will miss him.
