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 was with Minnesota Public Radio from 1992-2019. He was senior editor of news in the ’90s, ran MPR’s political unit, created the MPR News regional website, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
