Speaking Ill of the Dead…

With all the talk about the death of Osama Bin Laden and the misquote attributed to Martin Luther King, Jr., all I can say about OBL is that I will miss him about as much as he will miss me. And this quote is appropriate in this situation, I believe:

The dumber people think you are, the more surprised they’re going to be when you kill them.

~~ William Clayton

As for myself, there has only ever been one person in my life for whom I actually felt a twinge of glee (for lack of a better word) when reading their obit. That was the gynecologist who nearly screwed up my impending cancer surgery. The minute I read it (I was at Big Law at the time), I picked up the phone and called Robert, knowing he was one of the few people on the planet who could actually appreciate my emotion.
