George HW Bush, while not an overly favorite person of mine, he had his moments. So I have his funeral on now. Why ? I am fascinated by pomp and circumstance - though not always the circumstances. I like watching the military pallbearers maneuver the casket up stairs, and all that stuff.
Observations : While all the living Presidents and mates, were in place - the latest one arrived last. A few very awkward handshakes, and some particularly stoney expressions on the faces of Michelle Obama, and Hillary Clinton - no wonder.
It strikes me that "he" looks so incredibly out of place next to the rest of the line-up of better men and women.
It also strikes me how a standard funeral really exposes the bullshit of religion. It becomes so obvious as passages are read, how all of the god stuff was created to give survivors something comforting - or whatever - to say when people die.
Geez. Some decent music now and then though ...
