And Then...

From the New York Post:

July 29, 2003 -- Dead men tell no tales - except at the New York Times.

The obituary of comedian Bob Hope, who died Sunday, carried the byline of Vincent Canby - a Times writer who has been dead himself since 2000.

If there are any mistakes, obviously don't call the writer.

In fairness, the Times Web site, which posted the story last night, did say that the writer had died in 2000.
