    Piggay, you should go, if only to steal me a souvenir of some sort.

      I wanted to!! My coworkers went but I had to run to a happy hour thing and then head back to work to finish crap. *sobs* The coworkers had mixed reviews. I think the tall ones could see but not the short ones. Also, other coworkers with connections actually got to see more since they had tickets to some special area of some sort. Bastards.
      It's all about me and my precious.

        I am now almost as sick of hearing about Reagan as I am about Iraq.

            Dude, I'm really sad about Ray Charles!

            On the other hand, I'm really, really sick of motorcades and sirens outside my window. Go away, dignitaries! I'm trying to get some work done!

            ETA: I am, however, looking forward to my 3-day weekend. Woo and hoo.

                Awww, that's sad. I feel awful too that the first song that came to me when I read this was the Powerball song. I mean, he did some great stuff, but I see those lottery commercials all the time.

                  Fuckity fuck! I've seen no newspapers, TV or heard any radio so Ray Charles comes as a shock! I was playing Soul Brothers/Soul Meeting just last night. It's still such a fantastic album.

                  If you wanted sad around Reagan time, well now I am. Although it's due to Ray. *sniff*

                    It makes me angray that Ray's death will not get the attention it deserves due to all the drama of dipshit's 37-day funeral.

                      Speaking of dipshits - did y'all see former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney at the funeral? I think he's supposed to give a eulogy or is an honourary pall bearer.
                      Anyway, when the first Harry Potter came out one of the critics said Canadians would hate Draco on sight simply because he looked like a little blonde Brian Mulroney.
                      BM used to be a law prof or something and he married one of his students, Mila. She was shown in a huge above the fold pic on the front page of one of our newspapers giving Nancy a hug.
                      Plus one of their sons is the host of Canadian Idol - we can't seem to get away from these people.

                        I know that Ronnie's kids are grieving and all, but can Patty not take like 2 minutes before she knows cameras are gonna be shoved all up in her face and brush her hair? 'Cause, dude, it's looking HARSH.

                        <-- bitch

                          Is it wrong that I find Ron Jr. oddly, goofily attractive? Yeah, I thought so. I did enjoy his slight dig at W. when he said that his dad had the good sense not to make his faith into a campaign strategy.

                          *sniff* Nancy crying on the coffin! I'm not exactly her biggest fan, but damn, that shit was sad. I guess she and Patti had made up?

                            I cried through almost the whole thing at the cathedral this morning. Not so much the speakers and Ronnie as the military procession + "Amazing Grace".

                            Then I wondered what would have happened if someone had blown up National Cathedral this morning with all the VIPs in attendance and all. Then I thought about how the last episode of West Wing I saw had Martin Sheen grinding out the cigarette on its floor. *sniffle*

                              WTF?! I double posted? Even I don't like to hear myself that much. Apologies.

                                I teared up when the band at Andrews played some Holst, and Nancy stood at the top of the steps and waved. I also thought seeing her at the burial service, laying her head on the coffin, was the saddest thing ever, more so because of all the clicking cameras.

                                I wish they'd been able to reserve something private for the family. I understand the pomp and circumstance and advance planning and approval, but I was a little enraged that the burial service had to be carried live on four networks and not even then could the family get a little peace.
