Vandals strike Massachusetts cemetery
I could probably most a story about this kind of crime most days, but I restrain myself. But every so often, I need to put out a reminder of the destruction: More than 100 headstones were toppled by vandals over Fourth of July weekend in a cemetery in Lynn, Mass.

Where do we go when we die? This blog explores the places where cemeteries and land use intersect, and examines what urban planners and thinkers, communities and others are doing (and not doing) about cemeteries.
You can find a companion site at Facebook, and I'm tweeting about these subjects at Twitter, at @TaphoFiles.
