True or False: Nelson Mandela was born, lived, and became famous in order to have an extended funeral for the photo-op benefit of every politician, has-been politician, and superannuated journalist who can elbow his way to a teevee camera.
I'm pretty sure the right answer is "False," but you can surely be forgiven for thinking otherwise. In other words:
Enough. We get it. Now shut up and permit Mr. Mandela be laid to rest with some shred of dignity.
