RIP, RR

Mark Steyn has a nice tribute to Reagan on his website here.

I remember when I was growing up in Princeton, NJ and the kindergarten teacher asked who we wanted to win the election. All of us raised our hands for Carter, except for one kid who wanted Anderson to be elected. We made fun of him.

The Ivy League hasn't changed much, but the rest of the world has. The debt owed him and Margaret Thatcher for winning the Cold War and reshaping the politics of the Western World is incalculable.
