frankly i’m sick & tired of hearing all about reagan. he was charming & likable (to the rich & the conservative). he destroyed the soviet union (which was on a rapid slide to self-destruction). etc. anyway i am just irritated half to death by the reagan worship that is everywhere. it’s not surprising that he died, ferchrissake — he was 90-something and had alzheimer’s for years! so it’s not news. if they’re just doing historical retrospectives of him, then they should do the full thing — not just these adulatory fluff pieces. grrr.
