Oops ...

Nell and Wallace Crain, a couple who were featured in a San Antonio (Texas) Express-News Page 1A story and photo on "the secret to a happy marriage," died between the writing of the story last summer and its publication in the San Antonio Express-News on Monday. The deaths were not mentioned in the report.

Correction here.

It could have been worse: they could have separated!

An addition: The reporter who didn't update the story (it had been held for months), was just pushed out, this memo from the newspaper's editor says (see second to last paragraph).

Ms. Sullivan: A question regarding the posting of obituary notices. For the past five years or so that I have read the Wash Post obit page, there were anywhere from 1-10 full obit write-ups and 1-6 pages of paid obit notices. In the last several months, I have noticed that the "paid notices" rarely exceed one page and the full write-ups are substantially down also. This happened in the Balt. Sun and there was a notice that a price increase may have resulted in a decrease of the "paid notices" on the web site. Has this been the case with the Wash Post. I retired to Asheville,NC in 2000 and read the obit page daily. Would appreciate your comments. Thank you for your time and consideration.
