Thinking of Dying in San Francisco? Just Don’t Plan on Being Buried There!

You gotta love NPR – except when they launch another one of their interminable guilt-inducing fund raising drives.  Heck, I’m not even Catholic, but every time I hear one of their spiels and decline to donate, I feel an urge to go to confession!  Speaking of drives and NPR, however, I was going to a final walk-through inspection this afternoon and heard an interesting snippet about Colma, a small town of just over 1000 people south of San Francisco on the 280.

Apparently, San Francisco has banned burials within its limits for at least a century, and Colma has the nearest cemetery.  In fact, there isn’t much else to Colma apart from cemeteries, and a decade-old snippet on NPR calls the town “the country’s only official necropolis.”

    Too funny! If I ever want to be buried in a necropolis than now I know where to look. One less thing to worry about. ;P
