Dead Man Riding


They found a dead man riding the subway in New York yesterday.

Eugene Reilly, 64, a postal worker may have been riding the subway in a deceased mode for six hours, after his shift at the post office.

Imagine the effect on W.P. Convict, age 19, who spent time trying to roll Mr. Reilly for his cash. ("Roll" = rob, for our midwestern readers). Even stomping on his foot would have had no effect. W.P. (Wanton Perp) would have suffered a serious blow to his self confidence. Probably can sue the transit system.

If he had died at work, it might have taken weeks or months to discover his body. Those guys "go postal" so easily. Why do you suppose they call it a Dead Letter File?

    apparently postmen "sleeping it off" on a subway isn't unusual enough to warrant a second glance.

    Yes. It makes me wonder how they ever noticed that he was, well, dead!
