Unclear on the concept


In this media crazy world, some people consume too much news — and some people evidently too little. A woman who lives in Santa Monica thinks the Ronald Reagan funeral was held today in front of her house and posted about it with pictures at L.A. Blogs. Defamer apparently thinks so too, riffing on the fashion sense of mourners at the "Reagan funeral." People, watch a little TV, listen to the radio, read a website or pick up a newspaper: the funeral isn't until Friday, at that big church in Washington — you know, where the president lives. KCRW announced today they will carry the service live over the NPR network, by the way. I assume KPCC and most local TV stations will do the same.
