New York's Burke & Hare...

sorry, 'rogue morticians', seem to have stolen the bones of Alistair Cooke.
Burke & Hare were, of course, both honest, hard-working immigrants whose labours were needed in order to perform the jobs which, at that time, the Scots wouldn't do.
Or something like that, I guess. Who knows, they might have had that in common with the bone-thieves of the Bronx.
They certainly share the same darkness of the soul.
