I love the way forensic anthropologist Dr. Bill Bass of the University of Tennessee's Anthroplogical Research Facility says "I hate death." This is not an ideological loathing.

This is a personal, chip on his shoulder, Charles Bronson kind of death-done-him-dirty-and-death's-gonna-pay kind of hatred.

I can respect that.

He was on NPR this morning.
It's always kind of delightfully weird when the world at large discovers some bit of neatness that one has treasured, oneself, for decades. (I was very close to pursuing a career in forensic anthropology at one point in my mis-spent youth. To the point of majoring in physical anth as an undergrad.)

Weird, and cool.
