Rosa Parks to Lie in Honor at Capitol.....

Congress has authorized this rite only 29 times since homage was paid to Henry Clay in 1852. Those honored include Abraham Lincoln, Gen. John Pershing, John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Hubert Humphrey and unknown soldiers from the world wars, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. The most recent was President Reagan in June last year.

That's a fitting and proper way to honor her. I'm thinking she has a front row seat in Heaven about now.
