Took a full day but a reader has stepped forward to identify the stranger with a nice head of hair and a dark tie whose picture was slapped on Mort Levy's death notice.
Frances Malamed called after reading my column on Mort and his singular death notice, 264 hand-crafted words about his life and times, that we screwed up by topping with a picture of the wrong man.
Mort was bald and casually dressed. This gentleman was neither.
Turns out he was some other Levy -- Dr. Leon Levy, a periodontist from Wilmington, Del., who passed away in January.
