Speaking Ill of the Dead…

Posted by Joni in General, Obits


With all the talk about the death of Osama Bin Laden and the misquote attributed to Martin Luther King, Jr., all I can say about OBL is that I will miss him about as much as he will miss me. And this quote is appropriate in this situation, I believe:

The dumber people think you are, the more surprised they’re going to be when you kill them.

~~ William Clayton

As for myself, there has only ever been one person in my life for whom I actually felt a twinge of glee (for lack of a better word) when reading their obit. That was the gynecologist who nearly screwed up my impending cancer surgery. The minute I read it (I was at Big Law at the time), I picked up the phone and called Robert, knowing he was one of the few people on the planet who could actually appreciate my emotion.
