Cremation or burial? -Reply

Adam:  The newspaper USA Today ran an article on Friday, October 8, that
discusses social issues and the competition between funeral homes and
crematories (front page).  Additionally, USA Today ran an article on
crematory air
pollution testing in the Monday, October 11 edition (page 5A).  (The
test report should be available from EPA in about 2 weeks.)  Mr. Paul
Rahill, who
is referenced in the October 11 article, would probably not mind talking
with you. 
His number is 407-886-5533.  The web page address for USA Today is

www.usatoday.com.  I would be happy to review your work, if that would be
useful to you.   If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.  Good

with your study!
