Bagpiping up

Byrd memorial bagpiper | july 2010 | douglas imbrogno

I’m a sucker for bagpipes, perhaps because my mother’s mother was a member of Scotland’s Cameron clan.  In a former life, I likely went down in the highlands as the bagpipes played and I breathed my last for the old sod. Or something. That’s why the bagpiper at Friday’s memorial service for Sen. Robert C. Byrd, positioned dramatically on a ledge of the state Capitol Complex, was one of the highlights for me. Click here to see the video I produced for the Gazette about this ceremony, which featured presidents Obama and Clinton, Vice President Biden, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and others. And to hear this guy tattoo the air.
