From 7am to the end of the funeral? Who's the **buffoon** who signed off on this?

And they wonder why downtown is dying. Who would want to have an office down here, where every other week there is some think happening that causes traffic to be back up. Whilst i understand needing to close streets for this, why not do it after 9am, when the rush hour traffic is gone. Otherwise as ever people trying to get to work are delayed.

Rather ridiculous, really. You know how we love pomp and ceremony!
