However, I can list a few thousand people more deserving of reverence (guilt, pity?) than a man and his record of betraying the trusts of the offices he held.
Please, there is a world of difference in disliking someone's policies and politics and saying "it's a good day when they die." Try to not overstate and twist what people here are reacting to when they criticize what Halsy said...as far as I can tell no one has even tried to defend Reagan's ideas. They only (and rightfully so) said that Halsy's words were inappropriate.
