Hard Times for Funeral Profiteers
There's a good article in today's Toledo Blade ( A rare occurrence, I might add. ) about how the economic mess is causing trouble for the "funeral industry". No surprise there. Funerals have become everything Evelyn Waugh complained about in The Loved One. The whole "funeral home" experience is drastically overpriced and completely unnecessary. Let's go back to simple funerals, at home or in a church, and spend a bit more on a nice tombstone. Send the "funeral directors" to the unemployment line where they belong.
