Well, the two good ones gone.  Three if you count lena Horne.  Wonder who will be the next.

Funny in a non-pc way I can respect.  So, he's joined forces with Bruce and Brandon Lee in the fight against secret and immortal evil, has he?

This... could actually turn out amusing.

Besides his family, of course... who else would want to be at this funeral?  Perhaps a 'bunch of heavy metal sycophants' like WBC has claimed on their website?  Think perhaps one or two of said sycophants might take physical exception to the protest?  And not give a fat rat's ass what happens to them?

As a Christian, I tend to wonder what the first thought is for the members of this "church" once they realize their final destination is not as "uplifting" as they expected.

Where's our gov't when we need them?  WBC needs to be given the full on Waco treatment.

I heard laws are being written in individual states to combat this, otherwise there is a motorcycle group that travels around thwarting the "church"

Do tell?  Just in case Gardo, Puppy and I have some time coming up.  I could be the whacko in the side car with the goggles, crazy hair and chainsaw.

"Freedom Riders" - they assist the families when WBC shows up at military funerals.  I believe they're all Vets
