Man, Arturo, you really have a bee in your bonnet about that LA Times  
obit of Cadena not referring to Lubinsky.

The art you are referring to is not how to write an obituary -- the  
art is for an editor to assign the appropriate person to write the  
obituary.  Here the NYTimes main jazz critic wrote it.  In LA either a  
staff feature writer or a staff general obit writer who would not know  
Lubinsky from Lewinsky wrote the obituary.

I can assure you had Don Heckman written Cadena's obituary Lubinksy  
would have been referenced.  But that would have mean paying him a fee  
whereas the staff reporter who wrote it is on salary.

Oscar Cadena was born in Oklahoma City and reared in Newark. He worked  
at
the Radio Record Shop in downtown Newark, owned by Herman Lubinsky,  
who was
also the owner of Savoy Records. >>>>
