Problems persist at Arlington National Cemetery

Mark Benjamin of Salon.com reports on problems plaguing Arlington National Cemetery.  The cemetery's deputy superintendent, Thurman Higginbotham, has been at the center of an Army investigation involving an illegal wiretap.  The grounds of the cemetery have suffered under his direction as well. "One of Higginbotham's failures, say employees, has been his inability to rectify disturbing discrepancies between burial records and information on headstones. For years, Arlington has struggled to replace paper-and-pen burial records with a satellite-aided system of tracking grave locations."
