Great images! Thanks for posting, TomGuy.

How long before we start hearing from the DU crowd about how the evil Karl Rove staged the whole thing just to have those incredible shots of John Roberts as pallbearer for his mentor?

God grant him rest and peace.

I have never seen a female pallbearer (as opposed to an honorary pallbearer) before. Does anyone know who she is?

What a great, and charming man. I enjoyed watching an interview he gave to FoxNews a year or so ago.

Poor SDO'Connor, she is so sad. She and the Chief were good friends, dated in college and even finish number 1 and number 3 in their Law School Class at Standford. She has lost an old and dear friend.

The pallbearers were Rehnquist's clerks or former clerks.

No, he is hiding out in New Hampshire like the little coward he is. Justice Kennedy is in Asia but is cutting his trip short and flying home now.

Souter: I didn't notice him. Much of the camera work from from a distance. I did see O'Conner and Ginsberg and Roberts.

Thank you for confirming. There was a thread saying that souter didn't even put out a statement of condolence.

He's a petty little man and Sununu SR. and Rudman should be questioned on their judgement for recommending such a person to serve on the Supreme Court.

I watched the whole thing and did not see him. They were on the stairs in order: Brewer, Ginsburg, Thomas, Scalia, O'Connor and Stevens. Were did you see Souter?

When I was watching on C-Span and they were bringing up the coffin to lay in state and I could be wrong about this, but the Justices there and they were lined up on the steps from the latest appointed to the earliest, was this Breyer, Ginsberg, Thomas, Scalia, O'Connor, and Stevens.

"Lining the steps were six justices of the Supreme Court...Absent were Justices Anthony M. Kennedy and David Souter.

I think you all might be right I may have thought it was Souter when it was Breyer. It's not like we see much of them.

Usage question. On Fox, I believe I heard an anchor say he was going to lie "in state" and then correct himself and say he is to "repose". Can any Freeper fill me on on the linguistic hair splitting. Shades of 'gravitas' !

It will be interesting. The whole story of the two already drips with symbolism. The clerk carring the casket of the man whose seat he will take.

Lying in "repose" is when the remains of a deceased person, often one of some stature, are available for viewing by the public.

This is different from "lying in state," the latter term refers to a formal honour, generally in the principal government building of a country and accompanied by an honor guard.

Also, (I am not sure) I believe that a public figure lying "in state" must be in the Rotunda of the Capitol Building, in addition to the definition listed above.

Is Souter's health OK? Only reason I can think that he may have been given a pass.

"Is Souter's health OK? Only reason I can think that he may have been given a pass."

I think Souter is suffering from liberal partisan politics.

The lady in question appears fairly tall and strong, so no reason why she shouldn't. Too great a disparity in the bearer's heights, so they couldn't easily carry the casket on their shoulders.

I have not checked to confirm, but dollars to donuts it is Maureen Mahoney.

She is a fine advocate. Easily one of the best in the country.

Thanks. As one of his former clerks, she OUGHT to be there.

I just wondered who it might be, she seemed to do fine although she had to throw her right arm out for balance. I can't imagine being a pallbearer in heels, I would probably fall over. She did seem to be a good match in height for the other pallbearers.

I was flipping thru channels the other night and couldn't believe on the Letterman show he was making a joke about Renquist!~ I emailed the show about what poor taste it was and that I hoped when Letterman's mom passed some moron didn't use her death for a laugh! It really pi--ed me off. And in the 5 minutes I watched he of course made 2 or 3 Bush bashing jokes so when I emailed I said I had stopped watching for that reason. He has ceased being funny and instead is just full of hate and venom and that was why he isn't funny any more. Did anyone else see the show?
