In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"Greg walked into the office as he did everyday, setting his lunch down on the shiny metal table that sat adjacent to the door. Calling this place an office was an obvious stretch, but it was better than referring to it as the "Dead Drop-off," as the other coroner Bruce always refers to it. Every time the cops stopped by, they would remark about how absurd it was to call it the Coroner's office. They always mused at Bruce's not-so-subtle nickname."
