Reagan, dead at 93

To paraphrase Mark Twain, it seems a great pity that they allowed him to die a natural death. That may be a little harsh, and I don't hold anything against the man personally, but his presidency was just one huge PR facade and it's lead to the exploitation of the voters at almost scientific degrees of accuracy that we have today.

I don't remember a whole lot about his presidency except that he had no clear recollection of most of it.

Sadly, he has become the hero of today's conservatives the same way Lincoln became a respected wise man of the nation, through armies or writers changing the story after the fact.

I suppose it only fitting that he died as he lived, and with a facade to signify the occasion.

The same thing back in 2001 when they accidentally posted a lot of template obituaries on their site.
