Life’s (and death’s) little jokes


oldestI always get a kick out of seeing headlines  like this. No disrespect intended, but if the gentleman is dead, then he is no longer the oldest man in the United States.

It reminds us once again that the English language is a very harsh taskmaster. I know they used this caption because until he died he represented the oldest man, but that’s no longer the case.
