No rest for dead at foreclosed Mich. funeral home

PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) -- Even the dead can't escape foreclosure in suburban Detroit.

Five bodies and the cremated remains of 22 people have been removed from the House of Burns Memorial Chapel, a funeral home in Pontiac.

They were delivered to the Oakland County medical examiner's office for storage early Friday. The medical examiner's administrator, Robert Gerds, said some of the cremated remains date to the 1990s.

    Will the last remaining person in Michigan PLEASE TURN OUT THE LIGHTS!! P.S. Congratulations to the Auto Labor Unions for their TREMENDOUS SUCCESS and powerful negotiations on behalf of the soon-to-be impoverished and unemployed labor worker. Mr. Ford himself would have DIED to have seen this.
