I saw some of the most moving pictures of the whole week at the sunset funeral last night. Seeing a soldier – these are the toughest men I know – standing in salute with tears running down his cheek lets you know just how moving this ceremony was.
Of course, not everybody is impressed with the attention Reagan is getting. Dizzy Girl shone a light on some of them saying some pretty nasty things about Reagan, and apparently after they started getting media attention, they went into hiding and took many of their comments offline. Dang vampires, always afraid of the light.
On the other hand, there are very nice tributes across the web this week. Here’s a list of my favorites – er, excluding mine, of course 🙂 :
- Outside the Beltway has the most complete coverage of this tribute (also here and here and here). Outside the Beltway also includes all the text of both Bush’s, Margaret Thatcher, and Former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney eulogies.
- George Bush’s campaign site.
- Lori at Downtown Chick Chat (also here)
- Miss Vox
- Little Miss Attila
- Jeff’s Buzz Machine
- SondraK (also here and here and here)
All are worth reading.
