And while I'm in the mood…

…did anyone read Giles Fraser's ridiculous piece in the Guardian a couple of weeks back, having a go at parents who use euphemisms when talking to their children about death? He takes issue with phrases such as 'gone away' and 'fallen asleep' while suggesting that it is only in church that children can expect to hear the truth about death — 'know that you are dust and to dust you shall return'.

Funny he didn't mention the euphemism most used to explain death — certainly while I was growing up — 'gone to heaven'.

It's sometimes difficult to believe that any of these loons are actually serious, and the whole thing isn't just a big spoof, no?

Comments:
The heaven thing is quite insane.
 
Hello I just entered before I have to leave to the airport, it's been very nice to meet you, if you want here is the site I told you about where I type some stuff and make good money (I work from home): here it is
 
Holy cow! You're back! I had just about given up on you.


Yeah, I read that piece. Couldn't really relate to it, as my parents dragged me to millions of funerals as a kid. My funeral:wedding ration is still about 20:1. eep.
 
*ratio, obviously. my fingers seem to automatically type an "n" after "tio."
 
Heaven? Hell? Hello no. I intend to spend eternity rotting in a box so I'm doing all I can to leave my mark on this planet while I have breath and blood and tears and spit and gas. If we all thought the same, we wouldn't waste so much time watching reality shows or things with Hugh Grant in them.

Former Bulls center Boerwinkle dies
CHICAGO (AP)

Tom Boerwinkle, the former Chicago Bulls center who had a franchise-record 37 rebounds in a 1970 game against the Phoenix Suns, has died. He was 67.





POWER RANKINGS
The NBA's best are battling for position. We rank all 30 teams.



Bulls spokesman Tim Hallam said Wednesday that a family member informed team officials of Boerwinkle's death, and the University of Tennessee issued a statement saying the former Volunteers player died Tuesday at his home near Chicago after a lengthy illness.

The 7-foot Boerwinkle, [url=http://www.palmexpo.in/cheapnikeshoes.aspx]cheap nike shoes for sale[/url] drafted fourth overall in 1968, averaged 7.2 points, 9.0 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 10 seasons with the Bulls from 1968-69 to 1977-78. He also worked as an analyst on the team's radio broadcasts from 1991-94.

''We were all heartbroken this morning to learn of the passing of Tom Boerwinkle,'' said Steve Schanwald, the Bulls' executive vice president of business operations. ''In addition to being one of the Bulls' all-time great players, Tom was one of the kindest men you would ever want to meet with the gentlest of souls. A true gentle giant who made great contributions to the Chicago Bulls' organization on and off the court.''

Boerwinkle, from Independence, Ohio, averaged 11.4 points and 9.2 rebounds at Tennessee, helping the Vols win the 1967 Southeastern Conference title. As a senior in 1967-68, he averaged 15.2 points and 11.3 rebounds.

''Tom was a once-in-a-lifetime guy,'' former Tennessee teammate Bill Justus said in a statement released by the university. ''When you meet a guy like him and have him as a teammate, he becomes a brother to you, and there's no replacing someone like that. Despite his sheer size and presence, he was as genuine and loyal as can be. That's not just me saying that. Those are the sentiments of many, many of his former teammates.''
