Life is about to get very, very complicated.
Breitbart reports this grisly story, “Washington State Bill Proposes ‘Composting’ of Human Corpses.” Eeewww!! Why do I shudder at thought of taking a drive in the country and stopping for some home grown veggies at “Granny’s Garden Stand” or “Pop-Paw’s Potato Patch”. Or how about your neighbor’s potted plants…. Is there a reason for the tears?
Washington State is poised to become the first state in the Union to allow “human composting,” or the “accelerated conversion of human remains to soil.”
Senate Bill 5001, titled “Concerning human remains,” would allow for human composting, also known as “recomposition” in Washington, local KIRO-TV reported.
According to the bill, human remains “means the body of a deceased person, includes the body in any stage of decomposition, and includes postreduction human remains.”
May not be the best idea you’ve ever had. NPR writes, “Port-Au-Prince: A City Of Millions, With No Sewer System.”
Port-au-Prince is about the size of Chicago. But it doesn’t have a sewer system. It’s one of the largest cities in the world without one.
That’s a big problem, but never more so than during a time of cholera.
Public health authorities say cholera will stay in the environment for a long time, because Haiti has the worst sanitation in this hemisphere.
So what does happen to all of the products of our human internal combustion system. Again, from NPR, “Haiti’s ‘Bayakou’: Hauling Away Human Excrement By Hand.”
Port-au-Prince, Haiti, is one of the largest cities in the world without a central sewage system. Most of the more than 3 million residents use outhouses and rely on workers with some of the worst jobs in the world, hauling away human excrement by hand one bucket at a time. The men are called bayakou, and they work in the dark by candlelight.

The boys are off for a finger lickin’ good time….
