I think about obituaries more than many in my wide-circle of friends do.
This isn’t some age-oriented obsession, I’ve collected obits for years. People mail them to me from all over. So perhaps it isn’t surprising that when I learned that Reince Priebus had been fired, the first thing I thought about was how his obit would read: “Shortest serving Chief of Staff in White House history.”
Of course, Anthony Scaramucci’s obit will now read: “Shortest-serving Communications Director in White House history.”
