‘Some days, I feel like the grim reaper’ – washingtonpost.com Highlights – MSNBC.com

A fine piece of writing… Particularly since my wife has started volunteering with Hospice.

"From the woman’s bedroom, MacWilliams can hear Jon Stewart, the comedian, joking about President Bush. Comedy Central. It’s the last station the woman watched.

The detective enters the bedroom and takes photographs of the woman and the scene. He struggles to roll the body over it’s in terrible shape — but can’t see any obvious signs of trauma. He removes six of eight rings on her fingers, a difficult task because the fingers are swollen. The effort serves no investigative purpose. He just doesn’t want the rings to be sawed off at the morgue in order for the family to have them."
