It's long been the practice of this blog to make note of the famous (and infamous) when they die. But this post has sparked a discussion of CHATTER's Great Game of Mortality. Offensive, some say. Offensive and in poor taste. We don't disagree. The same holds true for some parts of life.
Mick Denniston, the former leader of Springfield Little Theatre, died during our blackout. A Denniston friend said we "failed to pounce" on Denniston's passing and posted this comment:
It just doesn't seem so much like a game when the dearly departed just happen to be near and dear to you, now does it?
