Profiteering from Rosa Parks

The New York Times (usual rego required) reports that the cemetary where Rosa Parks is buried is jacking up the price of nearby crypts. Nice. I suspect the people whose vanity leads them to purchase the crypts just to be seen to be close to the civil rights legend will not be receiving the same reception at the Pearly Gates as their neighbour.

The same article notes the original Memphis crypt of Elvis (prior to his removal to Graceland) is available. Personally I'm hoping that flashfreezing is an option wherever I am by the time I go.
