Does CBS watch Michael Moore?

You may have watched Michael Moore's new movie, Capitalism: A Love Story, and if you did you may have noticed the discussion of "dead peasant" policies, a mechanism whereby an employer that hasn't wrung enough profit out of its workers in life can make money when the poor sucker dies.

It turns out you weren't the only one who noticed. Dead peasant policies were the central plot element in this week's episode of CSI: Miami. I never cease to be amazed at how willing the cops and prosecutors on TV shows are to be outraged at the depredations of big corporations.
