07:58 – Happy Birthday to me. I turn 61 today.
Barbara mentioned last night that it’d be a good idea to stay away from the Wake Forest University area until Angelou’s funeral is over with. I suggested this morning that Barbara take an alternate route to work rather than attempting Reynolda Road, which passes the main WFU entrance. Apparently, WFU will be closed to the public tomorrow for the funeral. It’s likely to be a real media circus, with Oprah Winfrey and Obama’s wife speaking, which of course means the SS will also be out in force. It’s also possible the Westboro Baptist Church nutters will show up to protest because Angelou was a vocal supporter of gay rights. That, of course, means we’ll also have a large group of bikers out to protect the family from the WBC nutters.
