The Marlowe Deception*

Filed under: General — m759 @ 12:25 AM

From The New York Times  this morning:

"David Henry Marlowe was born in Brooklyn
on June 6, 1931, the youngest of three children
of Karl and Lena Marlowe, Jewish immigrants
from Russia and Ukraine. His father sold
insurance, among other things, and his mother
ran the household.

For a time, the couple had a 'mind reading' act
on the Coney Island boardwalk, and their son
never forgot it. 'I can’t read minds, like my
parents,' he liked to say to friends. 'What I can
read is behavior.'"

For the rest of the story, see Marlowe's obituary.
For synchronicity, see this journal on the reported
date of his death.
