The Uber Undertaker: Puerto Rican Taxi Driver Given Unique Send Off With His Hands On The Wheel

MV5BMTQ1Nzg3MDQwN15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNDE2NDU2MQ@@._V1_SY317_CR9,0,214,317_AL_We previously discussed the growing trend of posing dead bodies at funerals in activities that were most associated with the deceased from a woman at a kitchen table to a young man partying with a beer in his hand. The family of Puerto Rican taxi driver Victor Perez Cardona outdid the competition by having his entire taxi on display with the deceased at the wheel. You can see the pictures at these sites (here and Fox.

The 73-year-old, who died of cancer, requested the memorial which was parked at the funeral home. He had driven his taxi for 15 years. It does not appear from the pictures that the meter was running.

  1. Off topic. There is a case on the new Petitions portion of Scotusblog today called Walmart Stores v. Bauer. The cert petition seeks review of a case where the state trial court allowed some cheesy evidence procedure to establish a class action, damages and relief. Walmart had a previous case in the U.S. Sup. Ct on the same issues. This would be a good topic on the blog here, whether the Court grants cert or not. The right to a fair trial and fair use of evidence is grounded in the 14h Amend. This is similar to the UnReconstructed states which will not recognize the Jackson v. Virginia jurisprudence which provides a roadmap for sufficiency of evidence in a circumstantial case in criminal cases. I have previously bitched here on the blog about the courts in the state of Missoura and the case of State v. Freeman and then State v. Nash.

  2. Off topic. There is a story in The Daily Telegraph entitled: Do You Speak Dog. The authors do not know about the Dogalogue Machine but the Brits are getting closer to figuring things out.
