Funeral home alleged to have mistreated veterans' corpses

This isn't the type of thing I normally follow at this blog, but the story merits as much attention as possible: A funeral home that handles the remains of slain veterans is accused of, among other things, leaving remain in an unrefrigerated garage and in hallways and on make-shift gurneys. The funeral home is part of the Service Corporation International conglomerate, one of the world's largest death-care providers, whose work includes managing and owning cemeteries.
Here is a link from the Washington Post, which broke the story Sunday. The Post coverage includes video.
