I'll be offline for a day or two, so run free, commenters!
A few things to start the ball rolling.
I was watching the live stream replay this morning of the funeral ceremony for Margaret Thatcher. A military band played several funeral dirges, the Queen and Prince Philip arrived and were greeted by great applause, and then the horse-drawn caisson drew up in front of the cathedral, and Baroness Thatcher's coffin was carried on the shoulders of representatives of the different service branches inside. The occasion is a sad one, but it is always thrilling to see the spit and polish of the British military.
Later, the coffin was brought back out and put in a hearse, and the Queen and Prince Philip spoke briefly with Baroness Thatcher's children and grandchildren. All the while, the cathedral bells were ringing beautifully. The British really know how to do these things up right.
On this side of the Atlantic, it appears that both the immigration and the gun control bills are in trouble. Confusion to the enemy!
The New York Times has had to be dragged, kicking and screaming, into the courtroom to cover the trial of the Philadelphia Butcher, Kermit Gosnell.
Have a splendid day, and go with God.
