It's probably not a good thing to read about your own demise in the paper

If your reading your own death notice in the paper, your probably not really dead.....just reading another crappy "news'paper. Regardless, you better call mommy:

Man Calls Mom After He Was Reported Dead

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Anthony Sheppard shocked his mother this week with a telephone call, a day after he was reported dead. "When he called me I thought I was talking to a ghost," said Verna McCowan.

Oakland police on Tuesday bungled the identification of a man shot to death after finding Sheppard's identification card on the victim. Authorities alerted his mother of the shooting, and released the details to reporters.

Sheppard, 23, said he was shocked when he walked up to a group of friends on Wednesday who were crying while reading a newspaper account of his death.
