  • Body of Pres Reagan Arrives in DC in 40 Mins

    From the airfield he will travel to the Dome on an artillery caisson along streets filled with people, some of whom had been waiting since the morning. One interesting fact I heard is that the horses will be wearing special shoes to make the clip-clop more audible and more dramatic.

    I'm watching everything on TV.

    Just watched a hour of it live on Sky TV. Very moving ceremony. Getting the casket up those steps was some feat.
    One niggling problem though was all those sirens going off in the background. That should have been sorted beforehand. But seen like there has not been anything like this since 1973 there were bound to be a few minor glitches.
