The Casket Industry Gets Mean Online

This is one odd article from Wired. Apparently, independent retailers on the net are selling caskets for funerals at a much lower cost than funeral homes (“grieving people don’t haggle”, says the article), and funeral directors are fighting back, telling customers that independently bought caskets may break or spread disease. They’ve also gotten the top casket makers to not sell to any other vendors. Seems like a pretty competitive industry.
