The service for John Lewis is one of the most beautiful funeral services I've ever seen.

Without the orange hair beast in the audience, the service was even made more beautiful.

Totally agree.

In one way, it's infuriating that the sitting president would not be there at such an occasion, but given the current White House resident, it's a relief he's not. And I'm sure the family would never have wanted him there.

I'm guessing that the family, like McCain's family, said "You are not welcome."

I am sure that Trump can look forward to speaking at Herman Cain's service.

I'm sure Herman Cain's family won't mind having Trump whine and complain about how unfairly he's being treated, and no one will have to wear masks :) .

NEW YORK (WABC) -- Legendary New York City journalist Pete Hamill has died after emergency surgery for a fractured hip.

Hamill, 85, was remembered as a "newspaperman, novelist, mentor to so many, citizen of the world," following word of his death.

He worked for 3 New York City tabloids over 40 years, including as editor for the Daily news and the New York Post.

Hamill fell on Saturday, fracturing his right hip. He had emergency surgery at Brooklyn Methodist Hospital but died Wednesday morning.

It makes me extra sad when people die of things that didn’t exist just a short time ago. I felt that way about HIV/AIDS when it seemed to be new.
