Wikipedia Nerds Research the Recently Deceased

It is strange that every time I read about the death of a well-known person I need to check wikipedia. I’m not sure if I am verifying the death or looking to be the one who announces it to the community of editors and so-called lazy researchers. (I think wikipedia is one of the best resources for daily living and basic research.)

I learned today from the Times that John Updike died this afternoon at the age of 76. A & P has always been one of my favorite short stories. I reread the story after reading about Updike’s death and I imagined myself as the narrator of the story standing behind one of the registers at the Killingly Plaza A & P (turned Stop & Shop, turned empty & eternally for lease).
