I was wondering if any one else found the front page newsstory about Tillamook Rock morbidly cuious ... here's a follow up ...

... from The Oregonian ....

Maybe morbid, but definitely sad for those families involved. I know I'd be spitting mad if someone I loved was out there on a pile of lumber getting dumped on by a flock of filthy cormorants.

I told my family that I wanted my ashes thrown from the top of Big Sable Lighthouse in MI. The problem is most of them said that there was no way that they would climb up all those stairs to do it, so I better find a smaller lighthouse.
