Church bells across city will ring 71 times at 10:45 a.m. tomorrow

They'll signal the start of Tom Menino's funeral procession from Faneuil Hall to Most Precious Blood Church in Hyde Park, and will mark each year of his life.

May they also ring 56,662,169 times for all who've died since Roe v. Wade, a law advanced by Mayor Menino. Perhaps one of the 56 million "legally" killed held the cure for cancer? Shame on Cardinal Sean O'Malley for promoting the Menino Mass. Those who stand for nothing will fall for anything. Cardinal Sean, please stop soliciting donations from me with your countless mailings. If the likes of Ted Kennedy and Tom Menino are worthy of your time, obviously the rest of us should sin unabashedly and confess at the end! No surprise, Cardinal Bernard Law's "burly and amiable" (Boston Globe 12/14/02) bodyguard, Rev. John Connolly, will preside over the funeral.

Every woman who has died in childbirth or been murdered during pregnancy by the father of her fetus?

Or, I don't know, once for every time you should mind your own business and your own body instead of demanding control over other people?

Your beef is with the Cardinal - why don't you call him? Not every church in the city is Catholic, either - this ring-a-long will include all faiths that have bells.

But, tomorrow is Tom Menino's day to be laid to rest - how about we just be respectful and go along with the 71 rings for each year of his life?

I don't think it means what you think it does.

I've seen some pretty good parodies of foaming-at-the-mouth right-wing dickheads. This parody didn't really do anything for me. Try harder next time.

Can we use your head as clapper in such bell for all 56.6 Million times? I'm happy to forgo the bells ringing today for Tom Menino, as long as we can use your head as the clapper in the bell for all of these 'deaths'

Seriously, today is about Tom Menino, not your political agenda. Lets try to keep it that way. So you know what you can do with your political agenda? Let me give you a hint, it has to do with folding, four corners, and your tight a$$hole.

Let the man have one day of honor before you start attacking him. Have some respect for someone who has died. Sheesh

But because the embryonic bells are so small, you can't hear them.
