This is one of those headlines you couldn’t make up: As violence falls in Iraq, cemetery workers feel the pinch:

A drop in violence around Iraq has cut burials in the huge Wadi al Salam cemetery here by at least one-third in the past six months, and that’s cut the pay of thousands of workers who make their living digging graves, washing corpses or selling burial shrouds.
