A Better Place

We were big fans of Joan Rivers, who died yesterday. In her 2012 book, I Hate Everyone...Starting With Me, Joan discussed funerals. "I hate people who try to make you feel better. Like the neighbor who says, 'Don't forget, the first part of 'funeral' is 'fun!' Or the minister who says, 'He's in a better place now.' I'm tempted to yell out, 'No he's not. He had a house in the Hamptons. What's wrong with you?""
