Obit-A-Torial

One or two blogs, like the often interesting Prairie Weather, are taking note of a bitterly amusing obituary in the Chicago Tribune earlier this week. We reprint it here in full:
Theodore Roosevelt Heller, 88, loving father of Charles (Joann) Heller; dear brother of the late Sonya (the late Jack) Steinberg. Ted was discharged from the U.S. Army during WWII due to service related injuries, and then forced his way back into the Illinois National Guard insisting no one tells him when to serve his country. Graveside services Tuesday 11 a.m. at Waldheim Jewish Cemetery (Ziditshover section), 1700 S. Harlem Ave., Chicago. In lieu of flowers, please send acerbic letters to Republicans ....
Be sure to pay your respects by visiting the Tribune's Guest Book page.

Are 'obit-a-torials' the latest trend on the internets?
