Sad News: Meinhardt Raabe September 2, 1915 – April 9, 2010


One of the last munchkins from the Wizard of Oz, Meinhardt Raabe, the Coroner who pronounced the Wicked Witch of the East dead, died at age 94 from a heart attack. His most famous proclamation -

"As coroner, I must aver
I thoroughly examined her
And she's not only merely dead
She's really, most sincerely dead!"
