Never Let a Death Go to Waste

This one kinda takes the cake.

...Olivia Clark lived for only one hour. Doctors didn't even expect her to survive birth. So, her family has a hard time understanding why the King County Medical Examiner has to review her death and charge $50.

..."There was a little line on there near the bottom of the bill that said 'King county death tax: $50.' And we looked at that, and looked at that and looked at each other and said 'what is that?' Couldn't believe that a little girl that lived for an hour has to pay a $50 tax," said Larry.

After the County's pound of flesh, there won't be much left at all.
