Bob Hope’s Obituary Written by A Dead Man

In talking to my best guy friend earlier today, he told me that The New York Times had published an obituary on Bob Hope written in 1999 by Vincent Canby. The fact that the obituary was written long ago is not really usual, but what makes this story interesting is that The New York Times posted the article, even though Mr. Canby has been dead since 2000. Granted that not much has happened these last few years in Bob Hope’s life to really warrant an update, but come on. I guess dead men do tell tales.
