Dead at 93.
I didn't agree with a lot of his policies but he did work with Gorbachev to help end Communism and the fall of the Berlin Wall. One of the most endearing images of the 80s.
Hopefully, there will be some good that will come from the passing of the 40th President of the United States. First, Reagan's passing should signal a renewed interest in Alzheimer's disease that could give more research and resources for the fight to end this horrible disease. Second, Reagan's widow, Nancy, has been an advocate of stem-cell research something the Bush Administration has only partially embraced. This research is something that can help to find out more about Alzheimer's and other debilitating diseases.
RIP President Reagan.
