Similar story, when we first moved into the Tampa Bay Area there was a huge billboard advertising funeral services.
They listed the service and price.
Example
Regular funeral $2000
Regular funeral with premiere casket $3000
Simple cremation regular urn $795
Cremation with premier urn $1500
Cremation with burial at sea $2500
SHIPPING $295

Every time we went pass this billboard I would tell my wife when she died I was going to ship her, because that was the cheapest on the list. She always wanted to know where I would ship her. Told Her it didn't matter I would just say ship her and let them decide where. :D

Above prices I am sure have changed by now.

I don't understand. What is wrong with our legal system? Which other legal system are you personally familiar with for comparison?

The 'fact' that even though one actually 'did something' they are not necessarily 'guilty' from a legal perspective.

A good example is O.J.. Not guilty criminally, but culpable civilly.

Make no reasonable sense to me. Two sets of 'rules'.

What other legal system? One devoid of special 'interests'. Good luck finding it. Just because 'ours' is preferable to some others, does not make it most desirable, but rather the lesser of the evils.

Maybe we need to 'start over', but where do we get GW,TJ, et al.
