One has to comment on the bizarre coincidence this week involving the discovery of families keeping mummified bodies of their loved ones in Cincinnati and Italy.
The apparent cause in the Italian case -- keeping Mummy's (sorry) pension checks coming -- I can understand. But the more you read about the Cincinnati case, the stranger it gets.
Couple that with botched suicide pacts and LabKat's report on thin-skinned cannibals, and one wonders....why is weirdness breaking out all over the world, as if the forces of some unimaginable cauldron of irrationality, strangeness, and greed were no longer contained or isolated in a single spot?
Then I remembered...Congress is out on recess. =)
