Duly Quoted: Peter Worthington

A newsman's final words, in the paper he helped found.

“If you are reading this, I am dead.”

—Worthington, a career newsman, wrote his own obituary before he died at age 86 on Monday, and today it’s in the pages of the newspaper he helped found: the Toronto Sun. It’s a little unorthodox for a newspaper to let someone compose his own postmortem—one could say it seriously compromises journalistic objectivity—but this is the Sun we’re talking about. (It was “never as good a newspaper as it could have been,” writes Worthington.) Anyhow, the piece is a pretty entertaining read.
