Terri R. has informed me that it is apparently 'traditional' for flags to be at half-mast for 30 days for a state funeral. Who knew? Not me, obviously. I guess the last time they did this was for LBJ, when I was a tiny, adorable tyke--and like I said in a previous entry, when Nixon died they practically threw him into the ground like a sack of potatoes. No fanfare, no pyramids, no nothing. You learn something new (and offending) every day!
