• “one suspects that the circumstances of his untimely death will be litigated as well”

    Whether or not true, that’s just tacky.

  • I suspect Mr. Frank was simply anticipating my comment. I thank him for saving me the effort.


  • Future exam question: “One cannot libel the dead,” yet “one should not speak ill of the dead.” Discuss.

  • To paraphrase Firefly:
    “Here lies my beloved John, my autumn flower… somewhat less attractive now that he’s all corpsified and gross-”

    If one shouldn’t speak ill of the dead then why is it okay to speak ill of the living? Perhaps no one should ever speak ill of everyone. That world would suck big time.
