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
It’s much better than being caught.


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
1934 – 1976
Protest is when I say this does not please me.
Resistance is when I ensure what does not please me occurs no more.


John Lackland
Bad King John
1166 – 1216


Ilse Koch
1906 – 1967


Maximillien Robespierre
1758 – 1794


Some that we expected to see we did not. Caretakers told us, when we asked, that a lot of the monuments are stolen by souvenir hunters. There is still plenty of room there. Let’s hope it stays that way.

  1. Even in death they ought to be incarcerated, indeed. What is it you’ve said before? I like the way your mind works…?
