A recent article in the Washington Post (Outlook Section,
14 February 1999)relating to the writing of obituaries
reveals the journalist's perspective. E. R. Shipp, the
paper's Ombudsman, writes of the distinction between death
notices, which are classified ads, and obituaries, which

unflattering information such as unpleasant divorces,
criminal activities or other information that could be
embarassing to the family but essential to the journalist.
