Massachusetts residents lined the streets of the city yesterday afternoon to see the liberal lion's casket progress from the Kennedy compound in Hyannis toward his brother's presidential library in Boston. (A private family funeral had been held earlier in the day.) Thousands of people turned out to see the hearse go by, and hundreds more are already lined up this morning to see his casket where it is lying in the John F. Kennedy Library. Tomorrow a funeral mass will be held in Boston, where President Obama will deliver a eulogy. After, Kennedy will be flown to Washington, where he'll be buried at Arlington National Cemetery alongside his brothers Robert and John.
