Sounds like it will be a bigger circus than the Wellstone funeral/pep rally was.

How appropriate to spread his ashes over a horrible, communist state.

What a pity. I was hoping they'd bury him in California. Then I could pour a pot of my finest coffee on his grave...

...after it had passed through my kidneys.

Good Lord, if ever there was an stance of "much ado about nothing," this is it.

The man was a cold-blooded killer who never admitted his guilt and never apologized to the families of his victims. Old Tookie ahd years to do that, and he never did. Yet he is lauded as a great man. BTW, who in blazes nominated this animal for the Nobel Prize? Jimmah Carter?

Actually that is kind of appropriate when you consider that South Africa is a violent, lawless country where innocent people are victimized by ruthless criminals.

If there is a place in this world that is closest to Hell, Africa is probably it.

If I am not mistaken, didn't this guy murder, MURDER, 4 innocent people....what is so heroic about that? Plus he got 20 yers free time on our dime......thwy ought to scatter his ashes in the garbage pile.

And these so called "stars" I just add them to the list of movies to NOT go see if they are in them. We refuse to donate to their pockets by seeing any movies they are in.

I wonder if "Spikole" will be toking a few for Tookie

How nice. And afterwards perhaps they can swing by any of the graves of the four innocent people he killed.

They should also throw some of his dirt on Zimbabwe. Maybe something will grow.

I doubt it would be realistic enough to look like it had been hit by a shotgun blast at close range.

They know damn well Tookie's from South Central, why are they sprinkling his ahes in South Africa? I've never heard anything sillier. That plane ticket over could feed a few families for a few months. But don't get it twisted, Tookiess family has plenty of money because he was still running things from his cell. Thats whay he refused to renounce the crips.

I read some place that they were expecting 16,000 people. I guess they plan on renting the Forum or Staples arena. I believe the Forum is owned by a church group. Maybe they will sell peanuts and crackerjacks. I cannot believe anybody would rent a facility to this group. I would want a lot of insurance.

A fair number of rank-and-file anti-death penalty liberals are calling the celebrity cult around Tookie and Mumia into account - they say venerating unrepentent, cold-blooded killers harms the anti-death-penalty cause.

But, hey, celebs need their face time.

What are the odds he will take a bath for the occasion. How did Tookie know who his Ancestors from Africa were? He must have researched his family tree with all his free time.

It would sure be a shame if Al Queda were to take note of the location of this get together. Of course they wouldn't attack it, they would show up asking for donations. AND GET THEM.

Add Babs Streisand and Susan -I-am-G*d-Sarandon, and we've got a chance of a lifetime to wipe out the bunch of commies.

Oh, and George Clooney, too.

And TO will be hosting the after-funeral party. Entertainment will be provided by Dave Chapelle who is known to frequent SA on spiritual treats.

"Here's to Tookie. While you're at it, get me a banana cognac, biotch!"
