Alot of dignataries are now showing up to pay respects. McCain, Guiliani, Gorby, Karzai, etc.
Cspan has live coverage. Bush expected at 7 but could be earlier? He is then going to visit with Mrs. Reagan.
Guard changes about every half hour at .28 and .58 of the hour. One is going on right now.
Dog, bring the popcorn. I've got the Kleenex!
Tears in my eyes...
I hear ya, it just brings tears to my eyes to see him, among the many other world leaders, paying tribute to President and Mrs. Reagan. I'll bet the major TV networks have sh%t their drawers numerous times this week alone.
Kennedy now there
Oh darn, I really wanted to see that one; don't have cable, but can get friend to tape it if I set up in advance. Have to make a few phone calls...
Ugh! Ted Kennedy Alert!!!
Ted Kennedy being rotund in the rotunda right now
AWK! The swimmer is there.
I won't sully the thread with my thoughts about Sen. Kennedy.
I'm on CSPAn (#1) right now and they are showing the public passing the coffin (by the way, I happened to click on when Teddy K was walking by). Where can I see people greeting Nancy???
FWIW, and I admit NOT MUCH, Ted Kennedy just paid his respects at the Rotunda. Looking a little older, no wiser.
What is all that shrieking squealing sounds? Eerie.
Ping to history in the making!
LOL through misty eyes...
It is creepy, was not like that earlier.
How wonderful for Mrs. Reagan to accept visiters all day. I am sure that has helped her spirits greatly.
FaTed Kennedy just went thru, he didn't slow down, didnt stop, hardly looked at the casket. He was moving faster than usual and faster than most people there. Maybe he had to get to a toilet or something.
The person is dispicable.
GREAT pictures! Thanks!
I posted some breaking news you might want to check out everyone.....before they get started in DC.
