The Dead are there to Eat

On the way home from rehearsal at Forest Lawn tonight, we saw something heartwarming: deer eating the flowers off people's graves.

Before rehearsal, coyotes howled in the hills.

St. Paul had two heads: in the middle ages, two different churches claimed to have "the head of St. Paul" in their collections of saints' relics. Peter Bartholomew, in the First Crusade, had to have bodyguards, lest he be torn apart by the crowd, who wanted body parts for relics.

In Topkapi Palace in Istanbul, there is a glass cabinet with strands of beard from, I think, Muhammed.
