Death Rumors Swirl About Houston's Patrick Swayze

Patrick Swayze, one of a handful of famous Hollywood types from Houston, has been sick for a long time.

Today, rumors started coursing throughout the Internet and Twitter and whatever that the end had finally come.

His publicist, however, is denying the rumors, according to this article that doesn't quote the publicist, but refers to a story on People magazine's website that doesn't seem to be on the website.

A Florida radio station also reportedly announced the death (the station denies it); a Houstonian says a story was briefly up on the CNN website but later retracted.

Update: Here's the publicist's denial.
