It is better to be looked over than overlooked.

exiting the train in brooklyn today, a spread of the Times lay on the ground just in front of the turnstile, open to the obits. With a foot on the paper I stood and paid respects to the day's dead.

Elizabeth Maguire, 47, Editor Specializing in Nonfiction, Is Dead

Billy Hitchcock, 89, Baseball Veteran, Dies

Gerard Reve, Provocative Author, Dies at 82

Leslie Norris, 84, Poet Writing on Nature, Is Dead

may they rest in peace.

And looking their names up online, I find that Bobbie Nudie has passed, too. Finally, the blessed can strut in some decent duds.
