Skeletons in the Closet

I'm spending this week in Los Angeles.  Not the vacation from the cold that you'd be thinking I on, however.  I'm at the L.A. County Coroner installing some software that has been a while in coming.  To put it into perspective, the app is in VB6 and I have SQL Server 7 on my development environment to support it. Which means that I'm unlikely to have anything blogworth based on my experiences here.

What is interesting, if you have a sense of humor about death, is the the Coroner's online store.  Called Skeletons in the Closet, it offers a wide selection of Coroner emblemmed merchandise, as well as some shirts, cups, hats, key chains and mouse pads decorated with the requisite chalk body outline.  Honestly, I can't accurately convey just how cool this stuff looks.  Do yourself a favor and check it out at  It'll knock you dead.
