Mr. Wallace was an apparent suicide.”  HE was an apparent suicide?  He himself?  Not, “his DEATH was an apparent suicide”?  How weird.

(I loved the fact that David Foster Wallace named a character in The Broom of the System Judith. Judith Prietht. It’s an auditory joke used in a visual medium [sort of the anti-FOOB], and as such I didn’t get it until halfway through when I pronounced it in my head, and then I laughed and laughed and laughed.)
