Mourners gathered in New York City Monday to remember former New York City Mayor Ed Koch. Here’s a closeup of the funeral program.

Interment and internment — not interchangeable.

Koch was interred at at Trinity Church Cemetery in Manhattan. His headstone is inscribed with the final words of Daniel Pearl: “My father is Jewish, my mother is Jewish, I am Jewish.”

      If it goes out on Twitter, it is a “story” for Twitchy. This isn’t a “news” website. It’s about what’s going on in Twitter, usually related to the news.

        Some people just have to be smartarses.

        • Garth Haycock

          True. But some people are just dumbasses.

      • el_polacko

        true enough…but sometimes twitchy really does reach for something to get worked-up over.

    • SPCAndyJ

      Heh – these kind of comments from the same people who still obsess about a guy who misspelled the word ‘potato’

      • SuperFash

        Good for you. A glorious retort!

      Your brain, that is.

    Spelling is hard….

  • LoriGirl

    Spell-check & auto-correct have consequences.

    “You will be confined to Heaven, where you can never leave and you must walk hand-in-hand with The Lord.”
    Doesn’t sound so bad.

      Would you please help the GOP with their messaging? You have a gift to turn the demonic into the sublime.

      • TocksNedlog

        Thank you for the compliment, but I don’t know if I can honor your request.
        You see, I am a conservative, and therefore, were I to join the GOP as it is currently constituted, would find myself instantly marginalized.
        It is . . . ‘challenging’ to conduct effective messaging from the back of the room.

          Then join us in the Tea Party! (if you are not already there)

    Sittin’ Shiv with the Extended family and friends of Mayor Koch…New York City (and the World) will miss you, Ed! Jawamax 8<{D}

    Dependence on spell checkers does this.

    “Internment is private”. Save that one for Bill Clinton’s funeral.
