The area around City Hall has become a vast memorial to former President Roh. Thousands of people came to mourn, leaving flowers, messages, and in one case, a giant portrait. The funeral was Friday at Gyeongbokgong. When I arrived in the area, police had cordoned off all the streets around the palace, so I've nothing to show you except them, many of whom were sitting on their riot shields, waiting patiently for a call to action that, fortunately, never came.
