My first reaction was "People still die from Pneumonia?!?" But I guess it's the sixth leading cause of death in the US. http://www.medicinenet.com/pneumonia/article.htm

This totally took me by surprise - his PR person said that he was doing better and not critical. I always enjoyed watching him in movies and loved his comedy style. I just watched the Ocean movies a couple weeks ago - and he was one of my favorite characters. RIP Bernie.

Someone on another forum was saying Paul Newman has reportedly stopped taking treatment for cancer. Looks like we are going to lose another legend soon.

Wow....what is worse is that I read on another gossip site about his hospitalization for pneumonia making fun of him for going in. They said something like "Bernie Mac Dying...Not Really" or something along those lines. People forget how scary pneumonia really is, my dad had a really serious case a few years back and he was hospitalized for almost two weeks.

He'll be missed. I just watched the Bernie Mac show last night too..

Well I hope those other people feel like real ^^^^^^^s now. I used to work at a hospital and pneumonia is a very serious thing....I had it once - fortunately not bad enough to stay in the hospital - but it laid me up for about 3 weeks and it was absolutely the worst I have ever felt in my life.

He didn't just have pneumonia. He had a preexisting condition with his lungs that made him more susceptible to succumbing to pneumonia.

This is from msnbc.com:


Mac suffered from sarcoidosis, an inflammatory lung disease that produces tiny lumps of cells in the body's organs, but had said the condition went into remission in 2005. He recently was hospitalized and treated for pneumonia, which his publicist said was not related to the disease.

Lee: 'Film Will Be A Tribute To Mac & Hayes'

Director MALCOLM LEE is re-editing his new movie SOUL MEN in a bid to honour his late stars BERNIE MAC and ISAAC HAYES, who both died at the weekend (09-10Aug08).

Lee, the cousin of moviemaker Spike Lee, insists he won't be making huge changes to the completed film or altering its release dates, but he is keen to pay a fitting tribute to his stars.

He says, "This isn't like (Batman film) Dark Knight, where Heath Ledger died while editing was in its infancy; most of our editing is done. "We'll go back and see if there is anything we can do better... I want my movie to be a tribute to both of them."

Funnyman Mac died on Saturday (09Aug08) from complications relating to pneumonia; Hayes died a day later (10Aug08) after collapsing at his home in Memphis, Tennessee.
