Re Gloria Wilson's query, note also that the Gravedigger's riddle is clearly
false: "the houses he [a gravedigger] makes lasts till Doomesday."

To Gloria R. Wilson re Burial customs - It is still the custom today in Holland
to bury one deceased family member over another due to the lack of cemetery
space.  I can only assume that customs, geography and local ethnic ideologies
would influence variations on burial all over the world.  New Orleans has some
impressive above-ground cemeteries which have to be seen to be appreciated.
The reasoning is the sea level is too high to bury below ground.

I visited Shakespeare and Company's summer institute for high school teachers
last summer, and I thought it was terrific.  More important, the teachers who
were attending also thought it was great, and those who had been there before
spoke eloquently and convincingly about the many ways the approaches they
learned had enhanced and invigorated their teaching.
