Hey, did you know that when you die, your gross corpse has gotta be booted out of Berkeley pronto? That, in fact, a city law bans keeping the dead in town? Neither did we. Well, that's about to change, as the Planning Commission has approved an amendment to a 1910 law that prohibits the depositing of human remains within city limits. Now, a North Berkeley church can build a columbarium next to a Native American mediation space. Take that, Chapel of the Chimes! Personally, we're still going with burial at sea.
