farewell samantha

The most moving paragraph in today's Times, maybe this month's Times: "Samantha, the largest captive snake in the world, who for a decade dazzled a million visitors a year, died at her home in the Bronx Zoo yesterday. She was old." Reminds me of the best eulogy ever, delivered for L.H. Oswald. I'll leave it to youse to dredge that up.

"Mrs. Oswald tells me that her son, Lee Harvey, was a good boy and that she loved him. And today, Lord, we commit his spirit to Your divine care."
