The Last Word: Art Buchwald

Art Buchwald passed away last week while I was tempting fate at a ski resort in Muju (the attempt was successful and my muscles remind me of that with every move I make).

The New York Times has an interesting obituary concept: The Last Word. In the Last Word, they interview prominent personalities and give them the opportunity to narrate their own obituary.

Some might see it as morbid, however, I think it's a great idea.

I think you'll agree when you see how Art Buchwald starts off his obituary.

Here it is. From the New York Times: The Last Word: Art Buchwald

Rest in peace Mr. Buchwald.

One of my blog crushes, John Mayer also blogged about him, so here is that link too: Art Buchwald
