Boston Herald Performs Sex Change on Dead Actor

To be sure, the Herald picked up this obit from the Associated Press, but the morphy local tabloid can’t blame the wire service for the sex change, because the AP doesn’t use honorifics.

The headscratching staff has no idea if the Herald has fixed this on its website, given that the Rain obit doesn’t currently appear there. But our condolences go out to his family, both for his passing and the passing strange sendoff Mr. Rain received from the Herald.
