Ronald Reagan was honored by throngs of mourners who
appreciated his leadership and his beliefs and his humor. He made
everybody so proud to be an American when he was president. During
those eight years, Henry Kissinger spoke without an accent.
John Kerry made an appearance Tuesday at the Ronald Reagan
Library. He didn't stay long. Eventually he realized that people who
will wait twelve hours in line to pay their respects to a Republican
aren't going to give him a nickel no matter how hard he rings the bell.
Homeland Security said Monday that Washington D.C. will go
on a heightened alert as soon as President Reagan arrives from
California. Fighter jets will patrol the skies over the Capitol.
As much as lawmakers love Reagan, they don't want to join him.
The Chicken Ranch in Nevada was put up for sale Monday. It's
a brothel whose notoriety has caused a lot of embarrassment. There
was a time when a Democrat could tell voters he was born on a
chicken ranch without anybody raising an eyebrow.
The Los Angeles Lakers tied their NBA Finals series with the
Detroit Pistons Tuesday. It was a total effort by the team. Jack
Nicholson was credited with an assist before the game even started
when he agreed to read the referee's screenplay.
The United Nations Security Council voted unanimously Tuesday
to recognize the new government of Iraq. History was made. It's not
the first time they've had freedom of speech in Iraq but it is the
first time people may still be around to use it a second time.
John Ashcroft refused to give Democrats copies of Justice
Department memos that justified the use of torture on prisoners.
He's on firm ground. He believes that the legal precedent is
clearly established in the case of Spain versus Heretics.
Don King began a tour sponsored by the GOP to promote President Bush to black voters. He's the right man now. George Bush and John Kerry are such terrible communicators, everybody is hoping he can arrange a presidential boxing match instead of a debate.
