From the Morning Paper
Blog posts should really include links to the referenced material. I don't think it's statutory yet, but failure to do so seems to be synonymous with moral laxity.
Nevertheless, I will continue. The reference is to an advertisement and they don't include print advertisements in the paper's web edition. So you'll have to trust me. The advertisement was for a mausoleum in, I think, Orange County. I know; I should've paid attention to name and location. But I didn't. I was so struck by the amenities in this establishment, for this "affordable prestige" mausoleum provided 24/7 "climate-controlled comfort". Isn't that wonderful? You or your loved one can decompose in perfect climate-controlled comfort for all eterni- . . . um, well, no I don't suppose for all eternity. But for a very long time. At least until the outfit goes belly-up and someone dumps you in a landfill and redevelops the property into luxury apartments.
I should've saved the advertisement. Maybe they'll re-run it next week.
