The burial customs of LalaLand

By Cheshire ( articles - email ) | Jun 17, 2003

The funeral Mass for Gregory Peck was offered by Cardinal Mahony in his new cathedral and the liturgy included "a video tribute" to the late actor (who actively campaigned against the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Bork). The "video tribute" was in addition to a florid eulogy, and was shown on a huge film screen in the cathedral to the delight of the congregation/audience. Peck was entombed the new cathedral mutli-million dollar mausoleum near its gift and souvenir wine shop. Southern California was the setting for Evelyn Waugh's satirical novel "The Loved One" on the funeral customs of LaLaLand. All this took place just after the arrest of Bishop O'Brien.
