CNN.com - Decades-old mystery: Who visits Poe's grave? - Jan 19, 2006: "BALTIMORE, Maryland (AP) -- Continuing a decades-old tradition, a mystery man paid tribute to Edgar Allan Poe by placing roses and a bottle of cognac on the writer's grave to mark his January 19 birthday.
Some of the 25 spectators drawn to a tiny, locked graveyard in downtown Baltimore for the ceremony climbed over the walls of the site and were 'running all over the place trying to find out how the guy gets in,' according to Jeff Jerome, the most faithful viewer of the event."
I wrote a story that explained who the mystery person is. You probably never read the story, and you're not the only one. Be that as it may, I'm not telling the answer.
