I'm not sure if there is a thread about this yet, but I wanted to post this.

It seems that the mysterious visitor that has left three roses and a half a bottle of cognac at Poe's grave for the last 60 years has broken traditon.

I personally believe it has been more than one person, but now i'm starting to wonder...this is troublesome.

Well, as I understand it, that was really a hoax, a publicity stunt, in the first place, so I guess it doesn't matter.

A hoax? What was the hoax?

The hoax, as I understand it, was that there was no one person coming each year. Many people have come over the years, and it was really just something that caught fire and that people kept doing just for the sake of seeing what the media would report.
