Business Week has the cause of David Bloom's death: may have been the long hours he spent cramped in the Army vehicle that caused his death. Three days ago, Bloom had complained of cramps behind his knee. He consulted military doctors and described his symptoms over the phone to overseas physicians. They suspected DVT, or deep veinous thrombosis, and advised him to seek proper medical attention. He ignored their advice, swallowed some aspirins, and kept on working. On Sunday he died of a pulmonary embolism.

With a crass headline, the sometimes tasteless details, written by a BW reporter also embedded with the 3rd ID, show that the media, even in the midst of war, still hungers for celebrity sensation.
