There are a bunch of historical photos hung in the lobby of our office building, and until this morning I never took a really close look at this one. I knew that this place housed a lumber wholesaler and casket manufacturer, but I didn't realize they made them from "guaranteed decay-resistant redwood." As someone who worked for a summer in Sequoia National Park and lived among these mind-blowingly awesome (and nearly eradicated) trees, I find this incredibly moronic. I can see why people used redwood to build decks and outdoor furniture and stuff, but caskets? Cut down thousand-year-old trees just to bury them in the ground? Jesus, sometimes humans drive me nuts.
