Andrew Breitbart, the 43-year-old conservative writer who died Thursday morning, was found collapsed on the sidewalk near his Westwood home while taking a nighttime walk, his father-in-law told The Times. Breitbart was found about 12:30 or 1 a.m.
"He was walking near the house somewhere.... He was taken by paramedics to UCLA and they couldn't revive him," said his father-in-law, actor Orson Bean, who spoke with his daughter, Susannah Bean Breitbart, about what happened. "We're devastated. I loved him like a son," Bean said. "It looks like a heart attack, but no one knows until" an autopsy is done.
Breitbart's mother-in-law, Alison Mills Bean, called Breitbart "one of the most genuine people Ive met in my life.... He always spoke the truth of his heart and no matter what people agreed or disagreed with him he never wavered.

I read the Limbaugh Letter interview with Andrew and the comments about his relationship with Orson Bean. Very interesting.
The Man In The Arena
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly;
who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions;
who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
God rest Andrew in Heavenly peace and joy.
I always loved Orson Bean. He was funny on the old game shows.
OH WOW, I had no idea they were his in-laws!
Rest in peace, Andrew. You WILL be missed.
Mr. Bevis was the name of the episode. Stangly he was a marxist and is now a conservative. He calls his children “little communists”
I had no idea that Orson Bean is married to Ally Mills
I always knew about Andrew and Orson being related. They would bring it up once in a while in interviews and Orson used to write on Big Hollywood on Conservative issues in his witty fashion. I just was not aware of him having Mrs Arnold on his arm. Good for him.
Oddly enough, I just watched him this weekend on an old episode of Ellery Queen with Jim Hutton from the 70’s. That guy just turns up everywhere.
After LA does the autopsy...I’d get a second opinion. Just sayin’.
Rush has the interview at his web site—very good. PDF file.
I always liked Orson Bean.
You just know these are good people.
I keep that quote in my work locker pasted on the inside of the door at work so that I read it every day when I open the door, and I keep it on my FR homepage.
And these days she on the soap The Bold and The Beautiful.
Yep! For many years. I’ve always love Orson, too.
He’s aged so well .. and he’s still so sharp and
comical. Wish we saw more of him.
