Such fascinating discussion for a Friday morning! Beyond the 
social and technical obstacles to dealing with the human body after 
death in a way that minimizes environmental and human health 
consequences, I appreciate certainly the levity, but also the 
comments with regard to consumption -- and most auspiciously, 
those with regard to population. I know this is a bit of a diversion, 
but having only recently marked the birth of the 6 billionth person 
on this planet, I would like to recommend a visit to what I found to 
be a very powerful, interactive Internet site on the subject. Called 
clearly, 6 billion Human Beings, the Musee de l'Homme has done 
an incredible job of expanding my own awareness. Hope it does 
the same for you. You can visit the site at:


Make it a GREAT day and a WONDERFUL weekend!
