Maybe even with a pig's genitalia placed inside their mouth and sewn shut. And remind them that no virgins will want anything to do with them after that.......

Whenever I searched for the hoard I usually swept the area with a metal detector in case any other treasures happened to be near. My father, who I believe was in the know, said that the location of the hoard was a clue to finding other buried caches - one of them in a barrow containing my grandfather!

However, some of Columbus' remains also could have been buried in the Dominican Republic, he said. The announcement came a...

    WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) - Gen. William Westmoreland, commander of U.S. forces in Vietnam during a major escalation of the war, was buried Saturday at the U.S. Military Academy, where he was once superintendent.

    Terri Schiavo's husband buried her cremated remains in a Clearwater cemetery Monday, inscribing on her bronze grave marker that ``I kept my promise.'' David Gibbs, an attorney for the woman's parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, said inscribing the marker that way was a nasty political statement by Michael Schiavo, who held the service and burial Monday before telling her family. ``Obviously, that's a real shot and another unkind act toward a grieving mom and dad,'' Gibbs said. After earlier announcing plans to bury his wife's ashes in their native Pennsylvania, Michael Schiavo instead interred them at Sylvan Abbey Memorial Park...

    EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A CIA pilot killed in an ambush by Chinese communists 53 years ago has been buried in his mother's grave, a year after military investigators found his remains and identified them. Robert Snoddy was 31 when he was shot down on a clandestine mission in Manchuria in 1952. A last wish of Snoddy's mother was that no marker be placed on her grave until her son came home. A stone with the names of both mother and son will mark the long-delayed reunion. "He's home, and it's not a time to be sad anymore," Roberta Lee...

    An Iraqi jet, an advanced Russian MiG-25 Foxbat, was found in August 2003 buried in the sand after an informant tipped off U.S. troops. The MiG was dug out of a massive sand dune near the Al Taqqadum airfield by U.S. Air Force recovery teams. The MiG was reportedly one of over two dozen Iraqi jets buried in the sand, like hidden treasure, waiting to be recovered at a later date. Contrary to what some in the major media have reported, not all the jets found were from the Gulf War-era. The Russian-made MiG-25 Foxbat being recovered by U.S. Air...
