Fred Gion, a Frenchman who has a wonderful essay appreciating America and its current president in today’s Dallas Morning News, writes from Paris about Mr. Reagan’s passing:
The next week will certainly be filled with sadness, which is not Reaganesque at all! Oddly, this week could be the least Reaganesque week of the last 24 years. Then everything will be quiet again and we will remember the fighting spirit, the moral clarity, the optimism and the jokes. “Reagan dead” is an oxymoron.
