Just How Far Does Tax Arm Reach?

After you're done gasping, you realize there must be a mistake or the article is poorly organized. Walnut's City Council will "pursue the annexation of Forest Lawn Memorial Park . . . to bolster the city's tax revenues" (Times, Oct. 13).

The process begins by requesting that the "Forest Lawn cemetery be placed within Walnut's 'sphere of influence.' "

Taxes from the cemetery! And we only thought we got away after death! What tax revolt can possibly arise from this--Proposition Deep Six?
