    RBA started the thread to alert eveyone that Reagan's health had deteriorated, and then, within several hours he died.

    Go back and read the first several responses immediately after it was posted. People were simply paying their condolences immediately after someone dies. There was nothing political being stated or ideology touted. Just people paying their respects to this former President and to his family at their loss.

    For a time being, why can't people set aside their ideological differences and, yes, simply pay respect to a man who regardless of what anyone wants to think, DID accomplish alot of positive and great things during his life.

    I agree with what Randy stated above (and maybe it is because I am older and was brought up differently also); but I do not allow my partisanship/biases to go after and attack (which is exactly what Micheal and others have done) immediately after someone dies. They turned the intent of this thread into a partisan, ideological discussion/argument.

    I simply think that at this particular time it's wrong and very tacky.

    As the article RBA posted above on Kerry... take the high ground.

    You do some things simply out of respect...not ideological/partisan differences.
