The Continuing Saga of an Advance Obit
This is a story of technological mishaps, false alarms, political upheaval and an 8,000-word article that was started six years ago and still hasn't seen publication. It is the complex tale of an obit. Fidel Castro's obit. And despite rumors to the contrary, the former leader of Cuba is still alive. As for his pre-written obit, it remains inside a reporter's briefcase.
