What A Way To Go

While driving yesterday I had to stop for a funeral procession. I swear I haven't seen one in years. I remember as a child seeing them all the time. Has there been some change since then?

Columbus Guy says: You people in LA are eating your dead?

QueensGuy adds: This is largely a function of routing. Those of us who live along major routes from funeral homes to cemeteries (Western Queens and Eastern Brooklyn hold the vast majority of burial grounds for NYC) see them all the time. Presumably as a child you lived along the way from one or more funeral homes to a cemetery. It's always slightly embarrassing when you're cutting through a line of slow-moving, closely-packed cars, and suddenly realize that they're doing it for a reason.
