Haven't been editing obits long, have you?<p>Our obits are done by the ad department now, but when we had local obits we had one for a fellow in which it was pointed out that in the late 1930s, he once was afforded the chance to perform a dance routine with the Three Stooges in Utica, N.Y.<p>My hed for the little obit: <p>John Smith, 88; danced with Stooges<p>It was very well received. We still laugh about it.
