    Here we go again y'all! President Obama is being condemned for not attending Nancy Reagan's funeral. Nancy Reagan was married to the late president Ronald Reagan. First Lady Michelle Obama is attending. Should the president attend? What is your criteria for attending a funeral?

    there is a (fraternity...for lack of a more correct word) that presidents and their wives fall into, in which, they're the only members. being a former first lady, the president should attend her funeral; i would assume that all former living presidents will attend--Carter, both Bushes, Clinton--as should the sitting president. now, i'm not saying that he should attend the funeral of every politician being buried, but we're talking the (former) first lady of the nation. being a member of that fraternity, he should attend...unless the duties of his office negates his attendance.

    respect for the office.

    In 1987, Davis was invited to a White House dinner by Ronald Reagan. Only a few guests seemed to know who he was. While having dinner, Nancy looked at him and asked what he'd done to merit an invitation. Straight-faced, Davis replied:

    "Well, I've changed the course of music five or six times. What have you done except *bleep* the president?"

    The most outstanding memory I have of this dude is when he made Jet magazine's picture of the week, and he said the reason he was arrested and victimized by the police, was because he was driving with a fine white woman in his car! Now you know what I thought about his remarks right? Smile Hey, at least I'm consistent!!! ROFL

    Jack Johnson was the precursor for this mindset... and the man was still knocking the "haters" out in the ring, no matter how much they wanted to bury him for his confidence.

    Thanks for posting this. This is who Miles was. And, this is why I am so sure that Don Cheadle has grossly misrepresented Miles in his upcoming movie. One thing about Miles is he would never "bow down". That is what makes him one of my heroes. Like how he would play a whole set with his back to the audience pack with ofays. He would get paid, but he wasn't gonna kiss no @ss. He was the best!
