Thanks to Jonah Goldberg at The Corner for pointing to this story.

Update (Kim): Fox News is reporting that a Falwell aide has said that Rev. Falwell has died. He was 73 years old. A hospital press conference is expected soon.

Some of the nutroots are thrilled that Rev. Falwell has died. Take a look at some of the discussion threads at the Democratic Underground. Sickos.
