A Brace Of Eulogies To The Gipper

- Rosalea Barker - You have to wonder about those folks at Aunty Beeb. There I was in my lunch break at a computer class in San Francisco on Saturday, surfing the web, and I happened upon the website ticker saying that Ronald Reagan had died. See... Stateside with Rosalea: Ronnie Goes To Washington

- William Rivers Pitt - Ronald Reagan is dead now, and everyone is being nice to him. In every aspect, this is appropriate. He was a husband and a father, a beloved member of a family, and he will be missed by those he was close to. See... William Rivers Pitt: Planet Reagan

- John Chuckman - See... Chuckman Cartoon: Ronald Reagan Tribute

- Norma Sherry - We're inclined in this country to glamorize and idolize those that have passed on. A marriage may have been horrible for the last twenty-five years, but the surviving spouse will undoubtedly remember only the good times - even if they were thirty years ago. See... Norma Sherry: One For The Gipper

- Dennis Hans - It is typical of Americans, unlike other peoples, to not truly appreciate someone until he or she passes away. Surely this is the case with our 40th president, Ronald Wilson Reagan. See... Dennis Hans: Reagan's Dark Global Legacy

- Greg Palast - You're not going to like this. You shouldn't speak ill of the dead. But in this case, someone's got to. Ronald Reagan was a conman. Reagan was a coward. Reagan was a killer. See…Killer, Coward, Conman - Bye-Bye Ronnie Reagan

- Sam Smith & Undernews - Ronald Regan has carried out his last con. The first occupant of the White House to make politics just another form of show business is being buried as a hero despite having been one of the worst presidents America ever had. See... Undernews: Ronald Reagan’s Last Con (contains extensive links to more progressive views on Reagan's departure.)
