RE: Roadside Memorials
"On the other hand, I can understand the desire to publicly honor the memory of a loved one. I just always thought that's what cemeteries were for"

Exactly. Cemeteries and the places they loved, not the places they died.

Do I really need to be forcibly reminded of people who tragically died in some random stretch of road, on my way to a job interview, a baby shower or my grandson's birthday? And if it's someone I know, even more so? If I want to remember someone I will make the choice to go to the places we went together, to the places they loved and yes, perhaps to their grave, on my own chosen time table. Not choose to have my face rubbed in it where they died. Every day on the way to work.

Where are we going and why am I in this hand basket?
