Today is certainly a day you can’t believe everything you read, so I am not quite sure what to make of an article that first appeared on a U.S. site and now is popping up on mainstream media sites — including some Postmedia papers.
Hey, maybe the article about a graveyard that is inaugurating an area for lesbians is true. I mean, it certainly isn’t as farfetched as my April Fool’s Day fabrication about an invisible cop car (see preceding post).
It’s just that the news about this graveyard seems to have broken today, when all sorts of pranksters are playing.
According to the Associated Press report, the Safia association — a national group primarily for elderly lesbians — said it had created a burial area as a space “where life and death connect, distinctive forms of cemetery culture can develop and where the lesbian community can live together in the afterlife.”
Hmm . . . I do believe the spirit transcends the mortal coil at death and carries on in its spiritual journey, and eventually reincarnates in the material world. But hanging around the graveyard?
I dunno . . .
One has to suspect the timing of this story.
But, hey, nothing surprises me anymore – not even an invisible cop car.
