    Woman's body sits in front of TV for 2 1/2 years

    http://www.usatoday.com/news/offbeat...iedwoman_x.htm

    MADISONVILLE, Ohio Johannas Pope didn't want to be buried, believing that she would come back to life.

    Pope died at her home here at age 61 on Aug. 29, 2003. A towel had been placed around her neck to keep her cool on that 87-degree summer day. She wore a white gown while sitting in a chair in an upstairs room, in front of a television that played as family members went about their lives downstairs.

    She remained there, according to her wishes, for almost 2 years.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Maybe she was waiting for Seinfeld to be brought back on the air.

    That must have made for some stiff conversations at parties.
