Funeral Director Wants to Radically Change How We Think About Death
A few weeks ago I was emailed a link to a Youtube video titled “Ask a Mortician Vol. 1”. I was quite entertained by the video as well as the other “Ask a Mortician” videos on the Youtube Channel “Order of the good death – youtube.com/orderofthegooddeath”. I have been saving this link to share with you on a day I would be traveling (I’m am currently traveling for multiple business meetings) and I am so glad I did.
On Friday the Huffington Post featured an article about Caitlin Doughty, a funeral director, creator of OrderofTheGoodDeath.com, and star of the “Ask a Mortician” youtube videos. Caitlin is a rising internet sensation who wants to radically change the way we think about death, dying, and the funeral industry.

But that quickly passed as it became clear that the blog is a highly relevant and useful resource for men who adore women, and I am a very proud member of that club.
