Two obituaries – one complimentary and one not so

Take a look at this obituary for Pham Xuan An, a reporter for Time magazine who was also a spy for the Viet Cong. He passed away on Sept. 20th at the age of 79.

Now, take a look at this obituary for former Idaho Rep. Helen Chenoweth-Hage, who died in a car accident on Monday at the age of 68.

Written by the same author, one is essentially a puff piece, while the other obituary is written in a tone no self-respecting American would want to see used in their obituary. It won’t be hard to figure out which is which.
