From the Super 8

We’re driving downcountry to help with arrangements.  It’s as elaborate as a military campaign, these movements of troop and horse, scheduling and provisioning.  A whole family has to converge on a single home, to straighten out a single life, hand over hand.

 

Without going into detail: we hear about the “Death Tax;” can we talk about the dying tax?  The shortfall between Medicare and Medicaid that can only be solved by the premature liquidation of all your assets?  I wish I knew someone about to die with more than three million dollars on hand, so I could be outraged for them.
