No Obits

Every morning one of my regular website checks is, the locus of the Danville RegisterBee, the newspaper of my hometown Danville, Virginia, or should I be grandiose and say Metro Danville, since the newspaper's coverage includes Eden, Milton, Yanceyville, and Reidsville, NC, and Chatham and Gretna VA, among other towns or stoplights within a 30 mile radius. Over the last three days there has been a curious occurance. In a coverage area of maybe 70,000 people and an aging demographic there have been no new obituaries.

Maybe it's just too hot to die.
