Re: put the harps back in the closet
Some newspapers and members of the public will have assumed that George Bush Snr was about to die. The media were probably preparing obituaries etc. However, as he appears to be recovering, they will all need to hold fire and not get carried away. As JMurray said, angels carry harps and, in religious circles (Christianity at least), angels with harps appear when someone dies and the angels accompany them to heaven. It's not yet time to use those harps so they should be put back in the (metaphorical) storage cupboard where they are kept.
