Expansion of a cemetery? More places to fill with people who died? What a waste of premium land that could be used to fix the living by expanding the hospital services.

I live at an apartment building about five years ago that had a small graveyard behind it. I can't remember the address, but it was about three blocks from the hospital. The graves were unmarked for the most part. If you turn down the street where the first set of traffic lights are, there is a four way cross walk, it was the apartment building all the way down on the left.
