The power of the Internet does some amazing things. A rumor started over the weekend about Sinbad the comedian (not the sailor) had died at the age of 50 from a heart attack. Most of you might not know him, he hasn't done anything noteworthy since starring in "A Different World" with Kadeem Hardison and Lisa Bonet. Several websites and blogs published it asking if there was any truth to the rumor. The stories spread like wildfire, which prompted Wikipedia to publish that he had indeed passed away. Turns out he's fine, it's just his career that's dead.
