Yet again, the World’s Oldest Person has died.
Edna Parker of Shelbyville, Indiana, passed away on Wednesday. She was 115. Edna had held the title of W.O.P. for more than a year. Presumably she died of natural causes. If she’d died in a parachuting accident, I’d imagine that fact would have been mentioned in her obituary.
So let’s raise a glass to the new W.O.P., Maria de Jesus of Portugal, who was born on September 10, 1893. Quick, who was president then?
Grover Cleveland, of course!
