I have been known to be confused by simple things. Case in point. Our little twice weekly free newspaper prints the weeks deaths on the "Life" page. On the Life page you find births, birthdays, marriages, anniversaries , graduations and death. When I questioned this I was told that death is a part of life. Well...vegetables, car accidents, weather and war are also part of life but you don't find them on the "Life" page. The common cold, store closings and movies are part of life as well but again..... Why not just call the paper "Life" and sprinkle little bits and pieces of things all through the paper. Death is death. It always used to be found under Deaths or Obituaries. When did Death become Life? See what I mean. I'm easily confused.
