LITHONIA, Ga. (AP) - Hundreds of people are up early today to
pay their respects to Coretta Scott King. A three-hour public
viewing of King's open casket is taking place before her funeral at
a suburban Atlanta church.
About 800 people were waiting in a mall parking lot early this
morning to ride buses to the church, where King's daughter,
Bernice, is a minister.
President Bush and first lady Laura Bush will attend the
funeral, along with former presidents Clinton, Bush and Carter, and
14 U-S Senators.
Poet Maya Angelou will speak, and Stevie Wonder and gospel
singer Bebe Winans plan to perform.
