There's An Unemployment Angle We Should Be Happy With

As violence falls in Iraq, cemetery workers feel the pinch :
At what's believed to be the world's largest cemetery, where Shiite Muslims aspire to be buried and millions already have been, business isn't good.

A drop in violence around Iraq has cut burials in the huge Wadi al Salam cemetery here by at least one-third in the past six months, and that's cut the pay of thousands of workers who make their living digging graves, washing corpses or selling burial shrouds.
I am sure that a surging Iraqi economy in other sectors can find work for these poor displaced workers.
