Size Matters Even After Death

Accused in the media of seeking special treatment, former U.S. Rep. James Hansen has withdrawn his request to have a headstone taller than the 36 inches allowed by the city of Farmington, Utah.

"I do not consider myself in any way special over any other citizen, but some of the positions I have held apparently are considered special by many people," Hansen said in a Feb. 23 letter seeking 8 additional inches on the headstone.

A Hansen admirer said it should be 20 feet high. [Link]
