Calling the irony police for the second time this week. First we had Munch’s “The Scream” painting stolen at gunpoint in Oslo. Now we have Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, the death lady, dying.
Kubler-Ross, 78, theorized in her 1969 book, “On Death and Dying,” that the dying need to go through five stages of grief √¢‚Ǩ‚Äù denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.

On her web page, Kubler-Ross is quoted as saying:

Death is simply a shedding of the physical body like the butterfly shedding its cocoon. It is a transition to a higher state of consciousness where you continue to perceive, to understand, to laugh, and to be able to grow.

We are sure she’s up there sharing a good meal and a chuckle with Julia Child, and we await her sequel on whatever the sixth stage of death turns out to be.

One reply on “We Guess She Had it Coming”

  1. the sixth stage is when you realize tha not only do you have wrinkles and zits on the same face, but that you’re dead, and you have not lived fast, died young, and left behind a beautiful body. Oh, poopy.
