Today’s Afternoon Edition features several articles that we found interesting over the MLK holiday weekend. We’ll leave it to you to see which interest you and your choice of reading.
However, there are some interesting articles. For instance, one article states that some funeral homes in California are actually having to turn away death calls due to the number of COVID-19 deaths they have seen. Another article that comes to us from Texas gives a perspective on how the Latino community and their funeral homes have fared during the pandemic.
The articles have just about everything. . . complaints, potential fraud cases, a regulatory agency basically camping in a crematory to make sure the crematory is following regulations after some black smoke incidents have bothered residents, and more. Take you pick.
