Ken Muldrew

So burying a body in a canister of liquid nitrogen is a crime against nature while burying one in an elaborate wooden box isn't? As someone who enjoys woodworking, I'd tend to argue that putting all that fine wood in the ground is much worse (as for the body, who cares? Some people even burn them and then crush up the charred bones).


Ken, John Henry Williams was a terribly unpopular character in Red Sox Nation. A lot of people felt that he was exploiting his father in Ted's last years and they just assumed the exploitation would continue even after Ted's death. If it had been John Henry who wanted a quiet burial in a pretty plot is a cemetery overlooking the sea and his half-sister who wanted the body stuffed and mounted and put on permanent display at Fenway Park many of the people who thought John Henry was out to make a buck on the frozen corpse would have assumed he was out to make a buck selling tickets to the cemetery and sided with the sister anyway.
