No, there's nothing surprising about it. Everyone knew he was sick. But that doesn't change the fact that the passing of a great American is still a big deal. I think our country is a better place because of Ronald Reagan and his leadership.

What is sad is that a local public school near where I live had no idea that Reagan had passed away. When asked why their American Flag was not at half-mast, they asked why it should be. When explained, they said they had no idea...
Magnus, as a public school past atendee I agree with you 100%. I think that there should be a news cast made everyday for schools across the nation, and in homeroom they should have to watch a 30 minute clip. This would at least allow them to learn one thing in public school while they are there.

we had Channle One in my school days as well, and now CNN is getting into the picture, and it is the worst crap around. The entire broadcast, both Channel 1 and CNN, is about 20 minutes of which most is commercials selling students stuff. Companies have a captive audieenace as the students are required to watch as per the deal to get teh free TVs and VCRs. So Tomy and Sara watch commericals for Pepsi and can go to the cafeteria and buy the Pepsi, how wrong is that. Also, what is shown is so watered down and liberal minded it is basically a bunch of tripe any how. Yes the students need a news broadcast, but No commercials and less editorial BS. Leave that up to Sean Hannity and Al Frankin. Ok Rant over, carry on.
