Brickbat: Giving Them Grief


A spokesman for the Milton Keynes town council in England has apologized after a staff member of the Crownhill Crematorium reprimanded a man who moved his socially distanced chair to comfort his mother during a funeral service for his father. The council operates the crematorium. "We are sorry to have upset this family," the spokesman said. "We don't usually step in if a guest needs to be comforted by another family member and in this instance should have taken a more considered approach."
