Dead Libel Society

This week's Metro Times features a cover story about poet and funeral director Thomas Lynch's libel lawsuit against funeral industry critic Lisa Carlson. The story itself really isn't all that interesting or compelling. Basically Carlson has said and written things that Lynch doesn't like and since the burden of proof is high, like in all libel cases, it'll be hard for him to win. More interesting is the cool art on the cover which seems to be a rip off of/homage to the Six Feet Under title image.

It also reminds me of the video for Damien Jurado's song "Caskets." Behold:
