Journalists Write the Darndest Things

Kathryn Larcher sent along this excerpt from last weekend's World Wide Words newsletter. Thanks, Kathryn!

Department of post-mortem indecision: A cemetery manager was quoted in the Guardian Weekend last Saturday (16 February). He explained they sometimes had to exhume bodies: "Some people have an aversion to burial and decide they would rather have a cremation after all."

While we're on such matters, Peter G Neumann reported in the Risks Digest newsletter that the Web site of WSMV, Nashville, Tennessee, had a story on 15 February under the headline "Woman Says Being Declared Dead Ruins Life".

Department of clerical fecundity: Noted by Noel Donaghey on the Web site of The Adelaide Advertiser for 15 February: "An effort to lift South Australia's population to two million well before its target of 2050 will be led by Monsignor David Cappo."

The Monsignor is going to be SOOOOOO busy! ;)
