Before we could recover from the sight of this procession of public figures, we were treated to five extraordinary and touching eulogies, including one from Joseph Califano, and the final one from Margaret and John's son, Douglas Robson.
It became obvious that John was beloved by many and clearly was a success in many fields, but I still was not prepared for Donald Rumsfeld.
The reception at the Robson house following the service was so packed with prominent Republicans (the Adams, Califanos and Coleys notwithstanding) that I was rubbing shoulders with Dick Cheney and Alan Greenspan whether they liked it or not.

With Lance just minutes from the start of his final Tour de France time trial, it's almost surreal for me to think that just over a week ago I was caught up in full Tour frenzy, sneaking around 'backstage', riding giant cols, clanking cowbells, reading L'Equipe and generally being immersed in the quintessential French experience.
It occurs to me that I inadvertently gave short shrift to George Hincapie’s stellar win on the hardest stage of this year’s Tour, the death march over six Pyrenean cols to the HC finish at Pla-d’Adet.
Went to the beach at first light this morning and even though there was a nice little summer swell running and the wind was cooperating, the tide so was too fat, so I gave it a miss.
