What sort of Neighbors?

You hear about these people every once in a while being found in an apartment or house who have been dead for like three years or whatever. They are usually loners or a forgotten shut-in no one paid attention to whose mummified corpse is found seated in front of the TV.

A mummified corpse of a person who has been sitting in a chair for a couple of years is bad enough, but what about 42 YEARS!

Woman Sat Dead in Front of TV for 42 Years!

This article has May 16th on it, so I am shocked I missed it for a month, but come on... You mean to tell me no one bothered to check on this person for 42 years!? No family who inquired as to her whereabouts? Friends? Even neighbors? No one smelled her? A person can just drop out of society that easily?

What does it say of our society as neighbors when a person can just disappear for 42 years and there are no questions as to where he or she was? And what does it say about our slavish devotion as a society to the "idiot box" that every time one of these corpses is found, it is always propped up sitting in front of a TV?

I wonder if the TV still worked?

I think this one belongs on "Ripleys-Believe it or Not"

I read about this. The version I read said that her neighbours were jousting to claim ownership of her apartment, since it missed being privatized after the death of Tito.
