I Am Skooter
So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
Watchmaker steadies his delicate hand / I want you / For barbeque parties on blood red sands

Ronald Reagan

Ronald Reagan just died, and although I never truly respected him as a President (Voodoo Economics, anyone?), this is sad.

Our campaign office had a visit from a padre (named Paul) in the Army reserves yesterday, and he told me a story about a veteran who attended a D-Day ceremony yesterday. While standing there, in full uniform with medals, this guy collapsed to the ground with what appeared to be a heart attack. Paul held his hand on the ride to the hospital and gave him the last rites just before he was pronounced dead.

Our heroes are disappearing - I only hope that people keep remembering them.
