Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) is still remembered, "evermore."

His birthday was today, January 19, at the immorial age of 202.  A friend supplied this relic rendition of "The Raven," as read by Vincent Price.

Not bad, baby!  

But, the mystery guest at Poe's grave, who put roses and a bottle of cognac by his headstone for decades, for the second year was absent.  This is ominous.

Tell-tale letdown: Poe visitor again a no-show

Telltale hearts beat with anticipation during a rainy, midnight dreary and beyond, hoping the mysterious visitor to Edgar Allan Poe's grave would return after a one-year absence.

But once again, the unknown person who for decades has left three roses and a half-empty bottle of cognac at Poe's grave on the anniversary of the writer's birth failed to appear Wednesday, fueling speculation that he may have died.
