    LOVED this one for the humor; feel sorry for the folks involved!

    BIRITIBA MIRIM, Brazil (AP) -- There's no more room to bury the dead, they can't be cremated and laws forbid a new cemetery. So the mayor of this Brazilian farm town has proposed a solution: outlaw death.

    Mayor Roberto Pereira da Silva's proposal to the Town Council asks residents to "take good care of your health in order not to die" and warns that "infractors will be held responsible for their acts."

    LOL!

    This reminds me of the legal anomaly which existed in the UK until the Suicide Act of 1961, whereby suicide was a crime punishable by death!
