Ronald "Dutch" Reagan passed away today at the age of 93. He was the 40 President of the United States and the longest living former President; as well as the oldest man ever elected President at 69. Although the end of his life was plagued with Alzheimer's and most of his political life was surrounded by controversy, there was something about him I liked(not so much a President though). Maybe it was that the man originally from Tampico, Illinois costarred with a monkey in Bedtime for Bonzo, or that he liked to write letters, or that I felt sympathy for him with the way he was portrayed in the made for TV movie The Reagans.I hope the next world gives him the peace he did not find often in this one.
