Ronald Reagan, senile old man

June 2004 —

Yeah, yeah, Reagan is dead.

Enough. Lay him to rest, goodbye, thank you very much. Jesus. You'd think it was everybody's business. My god. An old, decrepit man passes away and you'd think everybody in the world hoped for a chance to stroke his coffin.

Filthy bastards. Let the senile old man rest.

And the newspapers:
"...Reagan, who suffered Alzheimer's for almost ten years...."

Almost ten years. Give me a break. I remember.

That's the way it is with Alzheimer's. You can remember things... things in the past.... it's hard to synthesize events around you....

I remember Ronald Reagan.
