"The paper comes each morning and never fails to deliver news of the important dead. Where else can you celebrate the life of the pharmacist who moonlighted as a spy, the genius behind sea monkeys, or the school lunch lady who spent her evenings as a ballroom hostess? No wonder so many readers skip the news and the sports and go directly to the obituary page."
