The souvenir that my son brought home from yesterday’s session of the Forensic Chemistry Camp reminded me that all businesses need to promote themselves, no matter what they sell. I could spend hours clicking on all the links on the Lynn Peavey Company’s website. As the pen says, they are “dead on for all your crime scene supplies.”
People who work with tragedy on a daily basis often use dark humor to help them deal with the situation. At a recent “TweetUp,” I spoke with a woman who worked as an EMT. She remembered joking about a case in which a driver seemed to disappear from his vehicle. His body was eventually found in the branches of the tree he hit. If you work in a similar field, feel free to share your stories in the comment section without getting too gross.
