Mary Katherine Obit: Blues queen Koko Taylor RIP June 3 2009 (22) RE: Obit: Blues queen Koko Taylor RIP June 3 2009 03 Jun 09

Sorry that I did not give a source when I posted the original notice here - frankly, I am at a loss to know what is the "right" thing to do. When I get information from someone who is well-known in our world, it always seems to me like name-dropping or "showing off" - as if I was saying, "see how hip *I* am, I got a personal call from so-and-so." So if I get a call like that, and it is from someone I know and trust, I have been remiss about giving the source - but that is the only reason. And at the time I posted, because I got the news within less than an hour of her passing, there WERE no published obituaries to cite, quote, credit, or link to yet.
I do assure you all that I would never post anything as serious as an obituary to the list unless I was absolutely sure it was genuine.
