Skeletons in the Closet

Most families have at least one "skeleton in the closet":  a shameful secret that they try to keep hidden and don't talk about.  Some of the things that are considered shameful have changed over time, and some differ by community.  This series of occasional posts discusses some of these taboo topics, what you might find, and being respectful when speaking to family members about them.
