I guess it pays to be prepared. Lots of people purchase cemetery plots (as I have already done) and even tombstones before their own death. Actor Nicolas Cage is one of those who is prepared. However, his preparations seem a bit unusual.
Cage purchased a large cemetery plot in New Orleans’ historic St. Louis Cemetery No. 1. How he obtained the plot seems to be a mystery; the cemetery is already overcrowded and local residents didn’t believe there was enough space for another burial, much less a nine-foot-tall stone pyramid that requires a lot of space.
The Saint Louis Cemetery is one of New Orleans’ most famous cemeteries where the dead are buried above ground because nobody wants to see their ancestors’ caskets floating every time it floods.
