It just struck me a bit odd today as I am reading through Sunday’s December 12, 2010, paper at work tonight, although I suppose that there is an obit written up for just about everyone these days.  This one was posted under a section called NATION/WORLD DEATHS.  Perhaps what is odd is how blatant they were about his vocation....

_ "LESLIE, John, 65, an adult film actor and director who appeared in more than 300 pornagraphic movies in the 1970s and 1980s, died of an apparent heart attack Dec. 5 in Mill Valley, Calif._

_ Leslie, whose real name was John Nuzzo, began acting in porn movies in the 1970s. He went on to become one of the first actors to successfully direct."_  

I don’t know how one has an apparent heart attack—either you do or you don’t, right?  Perhaps, they haven’t had the actual autopsy done just yet or the findings are a bit shady still?

I’m surprised that, as long as they were going to be so upfront about his vocation, they didn’t just go ahead and write up a bigger article about his demise and his part in pornagraphic history—or maybe folks will be seeing more of that in Hugh Hefner magazines?

Heck! His obit was much longer than that of someone that reached to be 108 years of age—

_ "CUENDO, Hugues, 108, a Swiss tenor who dazzled critics in his Metropolitan Opera debut a quarter-century ago, not only because he sang extremely well but also because he was nearly 85 at the time - the oldest person to sing there before or since -- died Monday in Vevey, Switzerland."_  

Too, I wonder...  if John “Leslie” Nuzzo had died 10-20 years ago, would they have been just as bold in writing up his obituary?  What do you think?

    • LOL......you read the funniest things in obits.  A few day’s ago hubby read one to me and we both cracked up.  The guy lived in Galveston, TX and it said “he loved to travel and had been to many places“........ok, so your thinking, Mexico, Bahamas, Europe, etc. right?  Wrong.  It went on to say “He travelled to Dallas, Austin and San Antonio“.  Oh gosh, we both just died!  (no pun intended).happy

    • So very true Angelcart.  I just wonder who is sitting writing up these obits, or what they were thinking when they wrote things up.  

      I used to shy away from reading the obits, but things can certainly strike a funny chord when reading through them from time to time.  

      lol.. re the Galveston obit.  I was born in Galveston myself.  I wonder how many of the Galvestonians have actually traveled the 7 seas being a port city.  Funny how some people view traveling being merely travelling throughout the great State of Texas! or not even hardly out of the backyard.  To me those cities mentioned would have been better described as “daytrips“.

      I would have been rolling right along with the two of you upon reading that obit too.
