Open Letter to the Construction Guys Digging Up Bodies on Grand Ave

Hey Guys-

How’s tricks? It sounds like you’ve found a few bodies over at the construction site on Grand and Cesar Chavez where you are building that new high school. And by a few I mean 80 so far, cuz, you know, it was a graveyard in the mid 1800’s or something. Is it there actually a chance that not a single one of the people involved over there has seen Poltergeist? You all might want to check that out before putting a school on that land. Really. That’s some fucked up shit.

Love,
Sean

  1. Cathedral High School and the Pasadena Freeway are atop the old Calvary Cemetery in Chinatown. That cemetery was used until 1896 when the New Calvary Cemetery opened. In 1925 the city required that all bodies be moved from the original cemetery but it wasn’t until the early 1930s that the bodies were exhumed from “God’s acre” and moved to New Calvary in East L.A.
