Best obituary ever?

That's what MSNBC thinks, anyway;  and whilst I've read many interesting and entertaining obituaries, this one is certainly funny!  Here's an excerpt.

[Harry Stamps] despised phonies, his 1969 Volvo (which he also loved), know-it-all Yankees, Southerners who used the words "veranda" and "porte cochere" to put on airs, eating grape leaves, Law and Order (all franchises), cats, and Martha Stewart. In reverse order. He particularly hated Day Light Saving Time, which he referred to as The Devil's Time. It is not lost on his family that he died the very day that he would have had to spring his clock forward. This can only be viewed as his final protest.

There's more at the link.

Mr. Stamps seems to have been a fun guy in many respects.  May he rest in peace, and may his family find comfort in their fond memories of his obviously well-developed sense of humor (which they've clearly inherited).

That's delightful! And I agree, we should throw out this "Devil's Time"
