I've gone to a lot of protests myself but I agree that funerals should definitely be off-limits and respect for the dead trumps any political statement one might want to make.

These particular protesters are the looniest bunch I could imagine but no matter who or what cause it is bogus to make a demonstration at a funeral. The sacrifice and death of a war veteran should be respected by all, no matter what we think of the civilian leadership taking us into these wars. A veteran friend of mine tells me a good soldier has no politics and thus it seems to me that these protesters should take their activities somewhere else, like maybe Washington DC or the CT office of Senator Lieberman, who thinks more of our men and women in uniform should die so we can make puppet govts in the Mideast rather than make a Manhattan Project here to solve our energy problems.
