    Good Christ.. CNN's continuing "tribute" to James Gondolfini on Piers Morgan and other shows, features clip after clip of Tony Soprano crashing to the floor unconscious from anxiety attacks. Tremendous class and wonderful judgement..
    .."We can't actually show you James's death, but we can show you the next best thing.."
