Reaganzilla comes into town today and the city is in upheaval. Starting at 3 p.m., streets will be closed, traffic will be diverted, and our beloved govermental liberal leave policy will go into effect. This is my favorite part:
At 16th Street and Constitution, the coffin will be placed on a horse-drawn caisson. The processional will then take Constitution to the Capitol. District police cautioned in a statement announcing the route that it could change "with little or no notice."
I'm just picturing a spooked, runaway horse veering off course and trailing the coffin behind him through the city.
