How much fun can it be writing an obituary?
Al Goldstein, famous pornographer and publisher of Screw Magazine, and a truly historical icon in American culture, died earlier this week.
I call your attention to the obit that appeared in today’s Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/20/nyregion/al-goldstein-pioneering-pornographer-dies-at-77.html?hpw&rref=obituaries
How much fun do you think the obituary writer had with this one ? It’s so full of information and anecdotes and borderline salaciousness that it’s a joy to read.
Do obit writers see colorful guys like Goldstein as an opportunity to strut their obituary stuff?
