    Certainly an embarrassing mistake, but I’d cut Google a bit of slack on this one. I’m sure they’ve updated their heuristic to look for the “person who has recently died” tag on Wikipedia entries–and, in any case, they did source the entry referring to the writer.

    I think the regurgitated UAL bankruptcy story last year was a much bigger scandal.
