Just a week ago, I was in Ronald Reagan National Airport, thinking about the prudence of naming a landmark after someone who was still living (I mean, he could not even be put on a stamp, for Christ's sake).

However, since I read this blog entry, I was less surprised that I probably would have been. Since Reagan has been in seclusion, I would not be surprised to learn that he died six months ago. Of course, we live in the United States, and not some totalitarian country.
