Sometime's it isn't easy being dead.

(From Obscure Store)

Josephine Miskowitz,78, who is quite alive despite what the government says, hasn't received her $992 monthly Social Security check for three months, forcing her to dig into her emergency funds. Social Security also stopped paying her HMO, which sent her family a letter of condolence that politely canceled her insurance, effective Feb. 28. "I think they're from orbit," she says of the Social Security workers.

The HMO has refused to pay for her emphysema medication as recently as Saturday. Presumably it's easier to kill her than change her status back to "alive."

Full story here.
