Pay Up

Adam Bernstein

Ah, credit companies. Apparently not even death gets in the way of seeking the balance on one's credit card bill. The NYT had a front-page story today on one credit company and its approach to calling distraught relatives to collect on unpaid bills of the deceased.

Reminds me of a lyric in the old jazz standard "St. James Infirmary": "Put a twenty- dollar gold piece on my watch chain, so the boys will know that I died standin' pat."
