Far-flung Death News

Adam Bernstein

Some newspapers have taken full advantage of harnassing video technology to obituaries. It can often add great value to the printed-word version. Today, London's Guardian newspaper offers video clips of a Tamil Tiger rebel leader who was killed by the Sri Lankan government in a raid.

And for a fun read, see the Times of London, which clocks in at last with humor writer Peg Bracken.
The story is full of examples of her wit, including this verse:

It's grim to meet a fellow who
Has quite clearly forgotten you
But, brethren, it is worsa
Vice versa
