Showtime at the Apollo

Today at 1:00 PM, James Brown will be hauled by horse-drawn carriage to the Apollo Theater to lie in state. When I passed the Apollo on my way to work this morning, there are already people lined up, and news crews staking out. My boyfriend (that is, some stranger in a hard hat that I fell in love with on the bus) commented on how packed the joint is already. There is no way I'm taking that route home from work, with all the general population not to mention celebrity entourages and security that will abound.
