Speaking of despicable

The Woodlawn cemetery in Detroit where Rosa Parks was buried has raised their rates.
The spaces in the Rosa L. Parks Freedom Chapel were priced at $17,000 before the cemetery gave spots, for free, to Parks, her husband and her mother. Now, the spaces cost $24,275, and possibly as much as $65,000 for the slots nearest to Parks’ crypt.
I am all for free enterprise and pricing what the market will bear but there are some things that one should not attempt to make a buck on. IMHO, this is one of them.
