"My mum made the point, "If we're going to put crosses on the side of the road, why not put little markers EVERYWHERE someone's died, like in hospitals and stuff? Then if you go to the hospital, you can see who all died in your…"

"If they feel the need to have a roadside memorial, why not plant flowers or a tree (if it's far enough away from the road)? It would feel your need to grieve by remembering the place and instead of depressing other people, they'll see the…"

Lorne replied to Lorne's discussion 'Roadside Memorials'
"I agreee to a point. Could not the memorial be taken down or moved after some appropriate grieving period. Also, let's be honest, in more cases than not, the unfortuante vicitimes were in a car with a drunk driver or killed by a drunk a driver!…"

"Good point.  I see what you mean about things getting out of control.  That would be pretty bad, but to be fair I wasn't advocating something that extreme.  What about a middle ground?  Obviously a high-traffic area…"

"That sounds eerily similar to my high school, Leslie. There was a car crash literally right in front of my school and the boy who died (wasn't even driving!) was well-liked around the campus. His memorial includes a picture of him and is always…"

"I pass by this roadside memorial for a guy that I went to high school with. He died in a horrendous car wreck at 16. And I hate seeing that everyday. I'm always reminded of his parents that are complete mental wrecks now. Even after 6 years,…"

Lorne commented on Vince James Abernathy's blog post 'Christianity in the furture.'
"Mormonism is full of shit. Golden tablets in some dude's backyard that only he could interpret and then lost? Gimme a break. The destiny of Christianity is the dustbin like all of the other religions that came before it.  "
