Your Mother’s Uncle

October 2, 2009

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.
