Paranormal Park fits right alongside them, and will no doubt become a source of joy for so many young viewers on the long road to finding themselves. If the company only stopped producing comedy specials for Ricky Gervais and Dave Chappelle we might actually be onto something. But enough about that - back to cartoons!
When New Orleans was first settled in 1718, life here was rough. There was disease and difficulty, storms and starvation, and one thing was dead certain: people were going to die. Likely very many of them. And those they left behind needed a place to dispose of the bodies.
The first cemetery in the city was built in approximately 1725, dead-center in the middle of the French Quarter, along St. Peter Street, and dead bodies were buried there underground. There were several reasons why anyone who thought this was a good plan was dead wrong.
The surplus of yellow-fever-stricken dead bodies was too much for the overcrowded St. Peter Cemetery to handle. Sanitation became an issue among the decaying of the stricken, and many locals were scared to death that the dead were still contagious to the living and that the air around these corpses was infected. Yet no one agreed on an appropriate method of disposal. Finding a place to stash these remains was becoming something of a bone of contention.
At first, people continued to bury the dead underground even in the new cemetery, but by 1804, they began to realize that above-ground tombs were a solution for the groundwater problem, keeping corpses relatively bone-dry by comparison. These tombs also followed the burial customs prevalent in Southern France and Spain, where many early New Orleanians hailed from.
