MALCOM KELLY Social Philosopher and self-empowerment author of "The New African American Man" and "Seeds from the Ashes" BRUCE JOHNSONI am a veteran broadcast journalist in Washington, DC, and I suffered a massive heart attack at the age of 42 while on assignment in a tough DC neighborhood. I had ignored the typical heart attack signs; they were not sudden, but slow and rather mild. I thought it was indigestion or even cramps from too many sit-ups at the gym the night before. My overall discomfort eventually gave way to a persistent pain in the center of my chest.
