    They said Kennedy had another seizure, or something, and it lasted a while. That sucks. >_<

    I love that picture with MLK in it, by the way.

    I hate to defend Bush, but Bush is not Satan. He's not evil, just dumb.
    And there is a huge difference between evil & stupid.
    Kill him.

    Kill It.

    Bush is stupid, Cheney is evil, and therefore, Cheney was probably in control most of the time.

    MLK carried on affairs. LBJ only completed what had already been started. John Kennedy was a philanderer as well. Lincoln, today, would be called trailer trash.

    The point? The means justified THE END!

    I caught up few minutes at the beginning of the ceremonies and I just looked back now where there are being presented flags, pictures of the ceremony and china (?)...frankly , I don't want to offend anyone but this coronation pageantry is ridiculous, it doesn't gain any gravitas in dragging on forever in inane codified rituals, a simple pledge and a speech are what matters

    Senator Byrd was, supposedly, taken away from the luncheon, too.

    History and tradition matters.

    While it is seems pretentious, to ignore it would be disrespectful.

    The ritual celebrations help people mark 'important' events, but it's really all a waste and too over the top. People are looking for jobs, homes, food, and they're over having a gourmet luncheon and giving each other etched crystal china. It just doesn't feel right.

    Countries with much longer history manage to keep it to the point, here it looks as if they wanted to add as many inane staples as possible to make it look like an English monarch coronation
