Last Respects

Three things about the Reagan funeral.

First, it was very respectful. The comments of his children were good to hear, and Maggie Thatcher's eulogy earlier in the day was much appreciated.

Second, my respect for the press has fallen even more. When a widow is standing over a casket crying, you are supposed to cut away to a different camera, you bastards. You had a camera on the sunset. You have no excuse. And you sure as hell don't make it your lead image in an article about the funeral. Monsters.

Third, my respect for Lew Rockwell has also hit a new low. If you have a political point to make, fine — but do it without spitting on the grave of a good man. Whatever happened to civility?
