Well, my mother’s uncle Doug, actually — which I guess is my great uncle, something-something removed — has just passed away. He was a pretty influential theater critic in New York. Here are his obits. I didn’t really know him at all, though I do know his two sons, who are related to me in some obscure, rhizomatic way. Douglas Watt lived a productive and fruitful life, which you can read about for a few points of relative interest. (Hah! I slay me.)
Rest in Peace.
