Those of you familiar with Wikipedia will know that the content and photos are provided by users and edited by other users.

Of course, if you don’t know that, you might assume that Wikipedia is the end-all resource for information about a given topic.

Which brings me to smoking crematory operators.

Why?

Because the in-depth Wikipedia entry regarding cremation features a guy who checks the body for remains and sweeps bone fragments into a processor, all with a cigarette in his mouth!

How can we change this?  By becoming Wikipedia users and editing the entry.  In fact, I think a couple of dedicated funeral directors could clear up a lot of misinformation about funerals and cremation with some careful Wikipedia editing.

Thanks to our friends at Final Dog for the tip about this Wiki.
