Well, Ronald Reagan passed away today at the age of 93. He was the first US President that I really remember (having been born in ’74). Other than Clinton, probably my favorite president, although I don’t consider myself affiliated with any particular political party.
ABC News says:
Former President Ronald Reagan, the actor and politician whose conservative vision and sunny outlook transformed America, has died.
Conservative vision and sunny outlook? This is the same man who said:
My fellow Americans, I’m pleased to tell you today that I’ve signed legislation that will outlaw Russia forever. We begin bombing in five minutes.
