Former Senator Lloyd Bentsen died last week. His obituary in the New York Times was written by Times reporter David Rosenbaum. What’s a bit spooky about this is that Rosenbaum himself died five months before Bentsen.
There’s nothing wrong with this, really; it just reflects the fact that obituaries are written well in advance of famous peoples’ deaths. And at the Times, death apparently doesn’t terminate a reporter’s byline.
