While this blog is not intended to be a listing of obits, one can hardly overlook some of the recent deaths in the entertainment industry--notably Dennis Hopper, Gary Coleman, Art Linkletter.  The wide diversity and gigantic gulf among lifestyles, career achievement and legacy of these men is more than a little interesting. 

Those of us who study the art of the obituary could write a dissertation on the various obituaries that have been written about these three since their deaths.  Things said...things left unsaid...things revealed:  fascinating work.  Truth or fiction? Do a bit of research for the obits and make your own conclusions.  Note: I highly recommend Adam Bernstein's obituary for Dennis Hopper that appeared in The Washington Post.
