Thought for the day

I have never understood why people talk nicer about someone after they are dead. Why? Did the bad luck of dying make them a better person? If you’re an asshole when you’re alive, you’re still an asshole when you’re dead, right? Personally, I think people like to cover their bases. In case God is listening in, people figure they had better say something nice about the deceased or God might throw some bad karma their way.
