The cemetery spread along the area known as Devils Abode. Melinda and I strolled among the headstones reading names and epithets. The list of the currently interred could go on forever but notables included:

**

Bonnie Parker
1910 – 1934

Idi Amin Dada
President for Life
1925 – 2003

**

Arizona Donnie Barker
Beloved Mother
1873 – 1935

**

Saloth Sar
1925 – 1998

**

Susan “Sadie May Glutz” Atkins
1948 – 2009

**

Joseph Stalin
1878 – 1953

Ulrike Meinhof

Protest is when I say this does not please me.
Resistance is when I ensure what does not please me occurs no more.
