Happy Birthday, Edward Gorey

Were Edward Gorey still alive, today would be his 88th birthday. I am delighted to report that Google decided to celebrate the occasion with one of their "doodles." It is, with a vague effort to honor Gorey's way with words, a beautiful Google doodle:
The doodle, in turn, apparently prompted Alice Vincent, Entertainment Writer for the online version of the London Telegraph, to write a rather nice appreciation of Gorey's work. No one seems to have caught Vincent erroneously calling the New York City Ballet the "New York Ballet;" but I suspect that the British have to endure similar blunders by American writers!
