not for the squeamish

As the clock winds down on this All Souls Day, I am watching an episode of the PBS series "Frontline" entitled "The Undertaking." It was broadcast in HD on Tuesday night. You can still see it online if you so choose. The show is about a funeral home in a small Michigan town. What makes this funeral home unique is that one of the proprietors is an author and poet. From the excerpts I heard him read on the show, he's quite good. His book, "The Undertaking" was a source for Alan Ball when he was doing research for "Six Feet Under."
