Civilized People


Some people appear to be upset that Tsarnaev’s family buried their dead son/nephew/cousin.

Civilized people bury the dead. (Or permit whatever the local funeral custom is). The fact the man is a dead terrorist doesn’t change our obligation. I understand why private property owners wouldn’t want the fuss, but the body needs to be buried somewhere, properly. 

We seem to be losing our civilization in many ways.
