The LA Times has a pretty nifty story about Coretta Scott King's funeral service, which several speakers turned into a Bush-bashing Ballyhoo. I suppose I'd find it a little distasteful that so many people used the funeral as an opportunity to pontificate and politicize, rather than remember, but for three things:
1. C'mon, it's Bush-bashing.
2. It's the first time that African-American civil rights leaders have been able to share space with the president who refuses to meet with them.
3. And ex-Prez-extraordinaire Carter got in some good zingers, and I find it impossible to say anything bad about him anymore.
