The Daily Goodbye
A World War II escape and evasion adventure marked the life of Virgil R. Marco. After he got home, he went into insurance but often helped other vets write their own stories.
Jazz composer George Russell died Monday. He was a MacArthur fellow whose theories influenced the modal music of Miles Davis and John Coltrane.
When can you speak ill of the dead? Let's face it, not everyone who walks this earth is a fully laudatory character but those scalawags, buffoons and grouches are hard to find in their own obits. The BBC examines this question -- and the comments are as good as the story itself. (I vote for full disclosure.)
