I will not join in the general media orgy of lamentation after the death of the fortieth president. I think a lot of Americans have good reason to abstain. Or, as late beloved religion professor once put it: “It is a sin to wish for the death of another, but you might read some obituaries with more glee than others.” Indeed.
Unfortunately, the Reganistas are with us, until the end of the age. I expect to wake tomorrow and discover the District of Columbia has been renamed. . . .
