Washington Prepares for Ceremonies to Honor Reagan

A plane carrying the body of former President Ronald Reagan is making the journey to Washington, D.C. Reagan's flag-draped coffin will be carried by a horse-drawn caisson to the Capitol Rotunda, where the public will pay respects beginning Wednesday night. Wednesday's ceremonies will include formal military funeral rites. NPR's Andrea Seabrook reports.
