The Cathy Seipp-Geist

Funeral rites in Blogistan take strange forms, as fans and friends of Cathy Seipp have discovered since her actual funeral on Friday.

Her own blog, Cathy’s World has become the online equivalent of open-mike night, and Lewis Fein is killing.

Luke Ford, never content to let sleeping feuds lie, enjoys stirring the pot, with predictable results.

Bloggers like funerals, except for the formal, boring parts.

The NY Times obituary seems edited for length. We told him so much more.

Cathy’s cousin Debbie gives an interesting perspective.

Ed Driscoll reminds us that Cathy usually said it first and best, with links to her piece on Hollywood screamers.

And Steve in West Virginia sums it all up:

If you believe in forever, and angels hover in the heights;
if there’s a blogging heaven, then you know they have a Hell of a site.
