It's not OK

In the past 15 seasons of ER, one of the "money shot" moments was when a patient expired after unsuccessful surgery, not long after the line "crack open his chest" was uttered. A cast member then got to call the time of death.
ER drawing to a close does not mean the end of such scenes, however. Jumping into the ER-shaped void nice and early with such a final diagnosis is OK magazine, running a Jade Goody tribute special that assumed, at the time of writing, she would have pegged it by now. This seems like the logical consequence of having her mass media celebrity deathwatch of the last few months unfolding in real time.
At least wait until the body is cold, OK?
