A tribute to Ronald Reagan

Of all the remembrances of Ronald Reagan now being written, I think Joe Carter’s is perhaps the most significant.

The most appropos act of tribute to the late president, however, belongs to George W. Bush: “The federal government will be closed Friday in honor of former President Ronald Reagan, the White House announced Sunday.”

I can’t think of a more fitting way to honor the passing of this great man. Too bad the closure won’t be made permanent.
