Sidney Sheldon Definitely Dead; Not Creative Enough to Fake That

Airport novelist and originator of many terrible TV shows and movies Sidney Sheldon died Tuesday afternoon at the age of 89. Despite the fact that, at the time of this writing, no one has broken the news to his website (where, as seen in the image below, Sheldon appears to be communicating from beyond the grave), there's little question that a writer of escapist fiction who once said "I don't think you can fool the reader" would be neither confident nor skilled enough to falsify his own passing.
