an exception

Wonderful line in Dean McDaniel's obit (which sounds like a product of his own pen): 

Teaching Shakespeare’s tragedies for four decades left him with the distinct impression that almost everyone dies in the end, though he had hoped that perhaps in his case an exception would be made

Many now entertain this "hope," and I'll be teaching a course in the Fall (The Future of Life) that will take a closer look at it. Wish the Dean could be there.
