Planes, trains, and automobiles or how long does a funeral take?

This is just obscene. How long are we to slobber over this guy? Now his corpse is taking a train tour of the state. He liked jumping out of airplanes too, does that mean...

Ok, that I'd tune in for.

2. RFK's body was flown to NY for his funeral

then taken by train to the DC area for burial. There's a film of the train's progress (recently shown at the SF Museum of Modern Art: the train managed to bypass most of the state RFK represented).

Lincoln's funeral procession was even more elaborate. His body was taken on a tour of most of the cities of the Union states where it was on display in an open casket for a few days in each. A team of undertakers went along, since the body needed constant, um, maintenance. By comparison Bush is having an understated funeral.

7. They hauled that S.O.B. Reagan's corpse all around the country.

All that, when all they really had to do was flush twice.

8. Let's see---load the body into an ambulance. drive it to the airport.

Load the body on a plane, fly it to DC. Put it in another hearse, put it on
display. Then load it up again and drive it to the National Cathedral.
Load it up again, fly it back to Texas. Display it again, load it on a train, then drive it again
to College Station.

11. Not me.

I stayed quiet and respectful for the wake.

He wasn't my friend.
I didn't like him.

I'm done.
