    Default Slightly Ironic

    Article from Granny Herald the other day, note the comments at the bottom of the article

    Amnesia International, remembering for those that can't.

    No trees were harmed in the making of this post but a few electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

    I don't know where funeral directors learn history, but cremation is exactly what "the Nazis did ... with some of the bodies..."
