The ultimate cost saving at the Globe: run copy by a dead man

The print edtion of the Globe and Mail has a full page obit of Liz Taylor by Donn Downey. Not a mention that the writer died in 2001. At least the last time they ran one of his canned obits they said:
"This obituary was prepared by Donn Downey, who died earlier this year."

Other articles on Taylor by living writers have now popped up in the web edition.

Maybe they can pay Nino Ricci (see below) with the money they saved.
