    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.
