Reports of my death are greatly exaggerated

By Domenico Bettinelli, Jr. (articles ) | Apr 17, 2003

The indispensable web site, The Smoking Gun, which exposes all kinds of public and not-so-public, but humorous documents has stumbled on a CNN boo-boo. Like most news organizations, CNN prepared a set of mock-up pages of obituaries for famous figures Among them were obituaries for Dick Cheney, Ronald Reagan, and Pope John Paul. I've always thought it would be interesting to read what people would say about you after you're gone.

By the by, the bottom half of the obit pages apparently were copied from the obit provided for England's Queen Mother last year. I'm pretty sure the Pope was never a "Queen Consort."

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
