The Daily Goodbye
Not that we want to encourage the trend of writing one's own obit (and putting hard-working professional journalists out of a job), but they can be amusing. The Providence Journal takes a look at the self-written obit.
On a more serious note, plane crashes are often tragic, claiming lives at their busiest. A 60 and 70 year old, dating with plans of marriage, died Friday night when their single-engine aircraft crashed in northern California, killing both Albert Halluin and Judy Perchonock.
Edward Arian, a double bassist in Eugene Ormandy's famed Philadelphia Orchestra, led his fellow musicians in a 1966 strike for their first guaranteed 52-week salary and published his doctoral dissertation on the control that the city's elite held over the orchestra. He died Feb. 12.
A scientist who can invent both a type of radio telescope and a way to keep tomatoes cool is someone worth knowing, IMHO. Alan Kenneth Head died Jan. 6.
Lee Jeom-rae, one of the oldest surviving Korean women forced into sexual slavery by Japanese soldiers during World War II, died two weeks ago at age 89.
