I think this occurs when there is an event record, but no data in it. The
current version already has a fix for "Gladys Blake was born." The fix wipes
out the sentence when the pattern is detected. I think anything stating the
obvious can be omitted. Now, "Gladys Blake died." does convey some
information, so it's not as easy to know when to delete it.
