STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
If you're a person who writes notes on your palm, you have nothing on Russell Parsons. He's a retired pipe fitter in the town of Hurricane, West Virginia, and he took some notes with a tattoo. The tattoo is on his right arm and it provides a recipe for how to cremate him when he dies. It says to cook him at 1,800 degrees for two to three hours. For anybody who doesn't get the message, the tattoo also includes orange and yellow flames.
You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
