GAUTIER, Miss. -- First, it was drive-in theaters. Then came fast food.But the newest drive-in has some residents shaking their heads. A drive-in funeral home.Coastal Mortuary, under construction in Gautier, is the first funeral home of its type on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. It is scheduled to open Sept. 1.Mourners will be able to pull up to a drive-in window -- much like a bank -- lean out of their car window, and push a button to select from one of two dead people. The person they select, lying in a room in the back of the building, will be shown on a color video monitor.

Nobody asked me, but ... do we really need to redevelop Owings Mills Mall into a retail "town center"? How about we just decide that the whole thing was a big mistake, knock it down, tear up all that pavement and turn the area into a park, with exotic things like trees and grass and deer and stuff? How about doing a facelift along Reisterstown Road instead, supporting the small businesses that are already there and encouraging new ones? Anyone for a charrette on this? • People who opposed the Baltimore Grand Prix keep sending me I-told-you-so cards.

DOVER AIR FORCE BASE, Del. - Like most military bases, Dover sends its wide-eyed young troops on their missions and welcomes them home as heroes. But it is Dover's unique and grim mission that distinguishes it from the typical base, because in every major American conflict since the Vietnam War, the dead have come home to Dover. In America's latest conflict, the remains of 189 victims from the Sept. 11 attack on the Pentagon were identified there, and then prepared to be sent to their families.

DOVER AIR FORCE BASE, Del. - The fallen soldier's journey back home to the United States always passes through here, the nation's largest military mortuary. The building where bodies are prepared for burial is brand new, state of the art, but much else is as it's been for years: the body quietly ushered from the jungles of Vietnam, the streets of Baghdad, Iraq, or the mountains of Afghanistan, stopping first at the Ramstein Air Base in Germany, and then onto a cargo plane to Dover. Since 1955, the base has received the remains of nearly 52,000 military members and civilians.

Now comes the gruesome, painstaking and respectful task of identifying the dead. Though crews are still searching for survivors, the focus in New Orleans and across Hurricane Katrina's path is turning to the regimented work of finding, recovering and identifying bodies. Federal disaster officials have already dispatched two complete mobile mortuaries to Louisiana and Mississippi. One has been established in Biloxi, Miss.; the other is operating in a warehouse in St. Gabriel, La. Called DMORTs, for Disaster Mortuary Teams, they include a full complement of professionals and highly specialized equipment for processing, identifying and preparing the remains of disaster victims for burial.
