Random thoughts yesterday while passing the time on social media.
Thank goodness that when Queen Elizabeth died, nothing else was happening in the news of any importance. Otherwise we'd have had to miss the wall-to-wall coverage for the past six days.
The late Queen's coffin has arrived at Buckingham Palace. No word yet on what kind of wood it's made of.
Finally, the Queen's coffin is now officially inside Buckingham Palace. Reports are that she is resting comfortably.
Good news. With the Queen's coffin now moved to Westminster, it turns out that the news coverage on MSNBC has become eligible for Best Limited Series.
With the Queen's coffin still at Westminster, she now has officially had a longer Farewell Tour than Dame Edna.
Has anyone checked inside the coffin to see if the Queen is actually inside? I suspect she was buried long ago, and this extended tour is a conservative plot to take attention away from Liz Truss becoming the new Prime Minister.
Breaking news: MSNBC is in negotiations to turn the Queen's Coffin Tour into a weekly series and put an after-show analysis on Peacock.
The newly-formed theatrical organization QE2 Enterprises has put together Queenomania, a tribute coffin tour. It's not the real thing but an incredible simulation. Multiple tours are being scheduled for the UK, Europe and North America. Australia is upcoming. MSNBC has the TV rights.
We interrupt MSNBC's coverage of the DOJ press conference on pending indictments -- for this Special Report on the Queen's coffin. We are live from Trafalgar Square where the casket currently sits unmoving next to Nelson's Column.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
