Inky Obits

Re “A fate worse than death,” by Dan Rottenberg (Editor’s Notebook)—

Alas, no one can have the last word on obits! But as I keep a daily eye on my last contact with Philly, I’ve been struck by the growing political correctness of the subjects chosen. As if the circulation department had the last word on who rates a last word. Dan’s trifecta makes me wish he’d take over the Inky’s Last Word Department. But that, alas, would kill the BSR. Too high a price.
