I wrote about it here on GT: http://groupthink.jezebel.com/back-home-in-h…

But I'm told the plan now is that we're scattering my dad's ashes at a Marine Corps Air Station where he always loved to swim.

Per my Hollywood bro: "There's a lot of sitcom potential here."

So if you hear about a family of drunken ne'er do wells ending up in a marine brig for the unlawful disposal of human remains, think of us with kindness.

If that doesn't happen, we're going to have curry. With lots of little bowls of add-ons, 60s navy style. Cause that was my dad's major jam.

And I somehow got nominated to write the obit for the paper. Anyone have any obit tips? Anyone done it before? Can I say "he disdainfully insisted the former president was the kind of man who felt the need to 'get out of the shower to take a leak'" without offense?
