RIP Jett Travolta

The teenage son of actors John Travolta and Kelly Preston, Jett Travolta has died today while on vacation with his family in the Bahamas; the above clip is from CBS News.

While normally the Pop Culture Institute maintains a news embargo on Scientology and its practitioners, the family's 'religious' beliefs may come to bear on this case; the younger Travolta had a history of health problems, including seizures, which his parents no doubt tried treating with Thetan mumbo-jumbo and biofeedback machines rather than actual medicine. If that is indeed the case, there's so much more at stake here than the tragic death of a teenager.

Needless to say, the truth may never come out about exactly what the nature of Jett Travolta's illness was or what, if anything, was done to treat it. If the nature of our coverage today seems cold it must be stated that our sympathies are with his family and friends, but if justice needs to be served, it's Jett Travolta's side we're on first and foremost.
