Word & a link from 'Anonymous' a few days ago

By Ed Waggener
Based on a letter from 'Anonymous,' an expat now living in the Midwest, where such seems to be ho-hum

An ever-so-shy reader sent a link a few days ago about a development for times of bereavement and remembrance, with a link to this story/video/with pictures from Jeffersonville, Indiana, by Chris Sutter: Southern Indiana Funeral Home Now Serving up Alcohol for Services. It was posted: Dec 11, 2017 4:36pmCT and updated: Dec 11, 2017. The reader wonders if anything like this is offered in Kentucky? If it can be? Should be? And where, the reader wonders, would it mostly be pioneered?

The writer reports that when the news was shared with a well-travelled, erudite man of the world colleague, his response was a meticulously punctuated: "Wha . . . I say, 'what!?!?!"

Didn't know how to properly interpret that comment.
