The Mercatus Center very generously gave me a grant to create a curriculum for my obituary project. Now I have to go write it. In solidarity with that intention, I am going to stop writing blog posts.
Say. Did you know Henry Heimlich (he of the Maneuver) was an Army doctor behind Japanese lines in the Gobi Desert? Or that Bette Nesmith Graham – mother of the Monkee in the wool hat – invented Liquid Paper in her kitchen blender? Or that Ethel Johnson’s children learned their mother was a professional wrestler when they saw her on TV?
You’d know all this if you checked out @passed_present, where there’s an interesting obituary posted every day.
So long, folks. Be well. Or at least don’t include yourself on that feed.
