As long-time NewsCut readers know, I have a fondness for a good obituary.
Nonetheless, there is a growing trend in obituary humor that makes anyone tired of politics ask the question, “Shouldn’t there be a place that’s campaign free?”
Not for Mary Anne Noland of Virginia, whose obituary appeared today in the Richmond Times Dispatch.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
