    Be aware that BGP's policy of no political discussion still applies here.

    If this thread gets even remotely political, it will be shut down and anyone in violation of the BGP Terms of Service will be dealt with accordingly.

    G.H.W. Bush's health has been in decline for a while now. Interesting detail about the announcement of his death...the Secret Service privately established a code word for the event of the death of President Bush, a lieutenant Naval air pilot in WWII,. The code word was "CAVU".

    For those unaware, CAVU is a term used by pilots meaning "Ceiling And Visibility Unlimited".

    Apropos.

    Following President Bush's body lying in state, the Presidential Funeral Service will take place at the National Cathedral, where George W. Bush is expected as one of multiple eulogists. After that, there will be a private family funeral expected to take place in Texas, and then President G.H.W. Bush's body will be reposed alongside Barbara Bush and their daughter Robin, who died of leukemia as a child.

    The presidential library is located in College Station, TX on the west campus of Texas A&M University.

    I just read the letter he left at the end of his term to his successor, President Clinton. It was so very gracious and positive; what a good guy!

    RIP, prayers and peace to his family.
