RIP Nancy Reagan


I didn’t agree with Nancy or Ronald Reagan on much (e.g., I thought her “just say no” campaign against drugs was wildly oversimplistic and ineffective), but I do thank her – as President Obama does in the video bellow – for her work on behalf of embryonic stem cell research and Alzheimer’s research in her later years. Also, on a more Virginia-related note, many of us probably remember the TV ad the Webb campaign ran in 2006 of President Reagan praising Webb, and Nancy Reagan asking that the ad be taken down. The Webb campaign complied, although frankly at that point we didn’t have enough money to run the ad anyway. 😉 Rest in peace, Nancy Reagan.
