They would have diagnosed him more quickly, but he insisted their responses be in the form of a question.

" This is a condition when the heart lacks oxygen."
"What is an ischemic heart?." "I'll take 'heart attacks' for $200.00 Alex."
" This is a condition when the heart fails to beat properly due to lack of oxygen."
"what is a myocardial infarction?" "I'll take 'heart attacks' for $1000.00 Alex."
"Ah--the daily double."
"I'll bet $10,000.00."
" This is an irreversible condition due to heart attacks sometimes secondary to cardiomegaly, ischemia, electrolyte disturbances, drug abuse, abnormal beats, and/or old age."
"What is death?"
I love you Alex and hope you get better. You made people like me count. People who have a whole lot of knowledge that will do them no good except to know it. I learn and read for the sake of it. Just to know.

At the time I read this, the headline was in marquee above "six students shot getting off bus," which was stationary. I understand that many people love Mr. Trebek, myself included, but why does a minor heart attack in a beloved TV personality call for prominence on a news page when the other breaking story is about six kids getting shot?
