Hand on head instead?

What is it with

Americans putting

their hand on their

heart at solemn

occasions like the

funeral of an

ex-president?

They do know,

I suppose, that the

heart is just a lump

of muscle that

circulates blood?

I mean, we have known

for five hundred years

that the heart has

nothing to do with

emotions, so why

put your hand over it?
