That is what I think BUT I could be wrong. CSPAN is saying 7 pm on the bottom of the tv from time to time.

Hoping others will post who have heard different.

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.

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.

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.

I despise Kennedy but I saw him with Lott at some event honoring Reagan (maybe in 2003). When Lott spoke his remarks were distant and unmoving. Kennedy on the other hand spoke with such great affection that I was shocked. I don't believe he could or would make that up and so I conclude that his feelings about President Reagan are sincere.

It started when Ted Kennedy came in, now it stopped when he left. Sounded like a poodle caught in a beartrap.

Pres. and Mrs. Reagan have always been class acts.

Wonder how many people are going through an hour as there looks to be double rows of people on both sides? This is nothing short of astounding to see this on C-SPAN! It looks like a lot of young people are there which is great.

From earlier this morning. I am reposting because it says so much.




I happened to catch this cap this morning.
I thought it very touching. Showing up in
full dress shows great honor and respect.

The 'Chief' used the feather wand his is holding
to bless. IIRC, the blessing is to the 4 corners,
which represent the natural elements: earth, wind/air,
fire, and water.
