So you think that even if John Brown's body 
is still a' moldering in the grave, he hasn't 
gotten any older?

The police agree with you.  According to 
their semantics, his age is always his 
date of death minus his date of birth 
but it requires a field to state he is 
'a moldering and a subtraction operation 
in addition to the date of birth.  

In effect, age is harder 
to determine once you are dead.  Weird....
