Wit’s Autopost: Theresa Duncan Blog Lives On

image_308_2.jpg

Either there’s a ghost or a prankster at the late Theresa Duncan’s blog, The Wit of the Staircase where a new posting has appeared.

An editor’s note says that there’s a New Year’s Eve post coming up, as well.

Duncanologists can dissect the story of Basil Rathbone and a mysterious phone call, as originally told by Dick Cavett, as well as the timing of the post. Or they can say to hell with it.

Tonight’s PBS Frontline offers a look at the funeral home of Thomas Lynch, whose books inspired Six Feet Under, and whose firm buried Duncan. Uncanny, but a coincidence to be relished.

(And in a similar way, Mickey Kaus quotes the late Cathy Seipp.)
