Rudolph Hess joins Bin Laden in the sea

The grave matter of Rudolf Hess
Somehow maritime burials, or ash scatterings, are becoming the favoured method of getting rid of undesirables. Osama Bin Laden was shot dead, wrapped in Islamic clothing and slipped overboard by secretive American officials. Now the Germans have decided that Rudolf Hess is better off with Neptune, Davey Jones and the assortment of pirates, sailors and general seafarers who have their graves amongst the fishes.

Rudolf Hess was buried in a graveyard in the small town of Wunsiedel, southern Germany. Not any more. His bones have been cremated and scattered at sea. All because his grave had become a pilgrimage site by neo-nazis. The gravestone has been destroyed. Maybe the German authorities think this will stop neo-nazism? I doubt it. It might just inflame the followers. Like with the current American expression doing the rounds "kicking the can down the road", they may have kicked Hess into the sea, but have they kicked out the neo-nazis?
