Inappropriate to say the least

Bene qui latuit bene vixit.
So you spend a bit of money buying a lease on a quiet little plot in the General Cemetery, you lay out your dead in simple plain graves with no ostentation and there you might think you'll lie, without attracting much attention, in perpetuity or at least for the 999 years of your lease. But you had not reckoned with idiots (no better word, well there is but this is a family friendly site) plonking ten foot high signs that are just an insult, a desecration if you would, of the whole ethos of the place. No doubt it'll have something to do with the pestilence that goes by the name of 'Culture' and no doubt a grant will have been obtained to create this vandalism.
I don't know who is responsible for this and I can find no record of any planning permission being sought or granted so it's all a bit of a mystery.


  1. It's one thing to put a plaque, perhaps at an entrance, if a place has some historical significance, but that is ridiculous.

  2. Native Americans might have something similar to say about archaeologists.
