Where Do We Bury James Brown?

Last weekend's funeral showed just how much attention Augusta gets from one of its favorite sons. Like many, I guess I thought Mr. Brown would be buried with his family. Then before the funeral, we began to hear about a plan to bury him on his Beech Island property and turn his home into a tourist destination like Elvis with Graceland in Memphis. Then this week we reported that many in Augusta wouldn't mind having the "Godfather of Soul" buried somewhere on this side of the river. So what do you think? Would a James Brown gravesite attract visitors like his statue on Broad Street? Or should South Carolina be the final resting place for its native son?
