I read the headline, “Thorndike woman’s death shrouds part of new burial trend,” on CentralMaine.com on Aug. 2.

OK, so I’ve probably have too much time on my hands, but jeeze, guys, unless you have a punster writing heads, which would be commendable, but somehow unlikely, Surely you know “shroud” is a verb as well as a noun. As in: just what part of the growing movement toward simple, frills-free burial does Nancy Rosalie’s business shroud?

This is not a criticism, just an observation. I know the evolution from print to electronic distribution must be like the transition of the paleolithic to the atomic. I wish you the best.
