he is lying in state. Read the following per wikipedia.org

Lying in repose is when the remains of a deceased person, often one of some stature, are available for viewing by the public. This is different from "lying in state;" the latter term refers to a formal honour, generally in the principal government building of a country and accompanied by an honor guard.


Lying in state is a term used to describe the tradition in which a coffin is placed on view to allow the public at large to pay their respects to the deceased. It traditionally takes place in the principal government building of a country. While practice differs among countries, a viewing in a location that is not the principal government building is referred to as lying in repose.

Just to clear things up :)

KARK had by far the best funeral coverage. They left all the others in the dust. Munoz and Massey looked like jr. high quiz bowlers compared to the depth and experience Bob Clausen brought to the day's coverage.

Really? I didn't think so at all. Bob may be older than those two but I thought they handled themselves very well. I thought KATV had the best coverage, everytime I switvhed to KARK they were in commercial.

I also really liked that KATV played a lot of the interview Win gave to Morrilton TV. I thought it offered a real insight to who Win really was.

I'm so glad that Fox stayed with Springer. That shows how much they care.

OK you bunch of clowns at 4. You can show your a&$ on this blog and it won't make any more difference in your audience than your sweeps efforts did. Clausen is one of the lowest rated anchors in the market and you know it. Got that Rob? Got that Ben? Got that Mother Nature?

You may want to take a closer look at those numbers. Especially the demos. The people who really know... sales people.. know the true story.

`might want to take a closer look at the demos? I make my living with the demos you refer to here and obviously know squat about. I'll make a deal with you. You let me know what show you believe the demos are strong in (besides judge judy and the 5 PM show) and I will publish the demo accurately to the 10th of a rating point, so you can actually see them for yourself...right here on this blog...`i stick by my reference to the clowns at you know where.

If I read those right, 7 wins five, 4 wins six, and 11 wins ten. 7 must be scratching their head. Expect someone to be blamed and fired over there. 4 should be happy.

I don't think Dale and the gang are smart enough to read the demos. I think all Dale and Randy care about are winning in HH's. You can't brag about the demos, but you sure can brag about winning in HH's while you're drinking at the Capitol Bar.

Yep. Closed in November, it was a generalization. Not a statement of fact.
