Did you stop reading them when <a href="http://www.opinionjournal.com/columnists/tvaradarajan/?id=95001699" target="_blank">your favorite Web site</a> ripped them for being "indigestible ... saccharine-and-molasses thumbnail sketches" that were a "ghastly, cloying disservice" to the memory of the dead?

I haven't read anywhere close to all of them, but I found them quite touching -- I think mostly because they're not intended to be full NYT-style obituaries, but rather just a little peek into their everyday lives.

No I stopped reading before that. The WSJ may be righter over all but I think they are wrong specifically about POG.
