When ‘slowbituaries’ are really slow

Thursday, July 12, 2012

Staff-depleted newspapers have increasingly taken to triaging their obituaries, getting to them as soon as they can. One must presume that’s the case for the obituary that appears today in the Chronicle for former Olympic swim champion and lifelong Bay Area resident Ann Curtis Cuneo, who died June 26. Better late than never.  As for the Marin IJ, its Curtis Cuneo obit published July 4.

The slow obituary phenomenon is by no means confined to Bay Area newspapers. Check out this response from the Boston Globe’s obituary editor to a curious blogger. I suspect it’s broadly applicable.
