ny times reagan editorial

since abby has disappeared without a trace i've been hopping around through the news. i thought the ny times' editorial on reagan was well done. http://www.nytimes.com/2004/06/07/opinion/07MON1.html

granted, there's no reason to get angry about reagan all over again just because he died, but there's really no use in forgetting his failures and shortcomings just so we can have happy cnn specials. this article points out a lot of the parallels between the reagan and bush 2 administrations, and it serves to remind that any prolonged glorification of reagan for the sake of good ratings is a boon for the bush. and to hell with that.
