HONORING PRESIDENT REAGAN. "Communism didn't fall. It was pushed." That's in a post by Will at Vodka Pundit, who reminds readers that Mr. Gorbachev's own hardliners tried to fire him in August of 1991, just before the Soviet Union ceased operations. The normally satirical Scott Ott notes,
[President Reagan] is survived by his wife, Nancy, three children and several hundred million men, women and children in the former Soviet Union, and around the world, who were set free from the hopeless terror of communist tyranny through his steadfast courage and unwavering faith.

In addition to recordings and transcripts of dozens of the most compelling, sincere and influential speeches ever heard, President Reagan also leaves behind an America that is no longer afraid to call evil what it is, and to do something about it.
