Dust To Dust...
Courtesy Ann Althouse, guestblogging over at Instapundit, comes this timely (to me) and interesting link to an article on the 'green' funerary practice. This subject does not raise any particular flags, nor engender a rant from me. The article was well written, and I think the author had fun doing it.|
Read the article, paying attention to the choice of phrases. For instance, a man who "... reopened the long-moldering cemetery last fall.". Another instance (emphasis mine):
[...]This passage, however, raises a question:
[...]I have re-read this paragraph several times, and aside from the profession (Freelance Embalmer?) and the person's nom de guerre (Dead Ed?), I cannot figure out how he embalms corpses on a bicycle.
All in all, an interesting read. Having attended nine funerals in the past nine months (my travel day yesterday was for the ninth), it struck a chord.
