Broke people can still squeeze in the monthly premium for a $2000 or $3000 policy to cremate them if they really cared about their survivors.

Wasn't it Pennsylvania where a major newspaper ran an op-ed piece recently urging seniors to ignore cards they received in the mail offering final expense insurance, saying it was a scam preying on the elderly? And this article blames the survivors for not assuming the "responsibility" of burying their loved ones.
