...AND MORE THOUGHTS ON REAGAN


1. Tomorrow, Reaganites will finally achieve what the Gipper failed to do in 8 years as President: shut down the federal government. (Yours truly will be at work still).

2. If the Communist system by its nature contained the seeds of its own destruction (by restricting freedoms and creating grave inefficiencies), then how could Reagan be responsible for defeating Communism? Communism defeated itself. Sure, he said, "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall." But just because the rooster crows doesn't mean he makes the sun rise in the morning.

3. Tomorrow, Reagan will receive what tens and hundreds of thousands of the victims of his policies--in Central America, Southern Africa, and elsewhere in the developing world--disappeared to unmarked mass graves never received: a fitting funeral and burial.
