I was talking to Ed who'd been reported dead by mutual friends

The paper version of the Caltech alumni newsletter says that it's no longer going to bother printing an obituary section.

Supposedly, the obituaries will be available online, although right now the ones online seem to be a year out of date.

This seems backwards to me since the people with the most reason to read the obituary section seem the least likely to be reading it online. But perhaps that's an old-fashioned attitude.

Best Caltech alumni obituary: Edward E. Simmons

Best Harvard alumni obituary: possibly some guy in a recent issue who got killed by lightning.
