Ronald Reagan is still dead.
I suppose it's obvious - legacy and all that - but really I don't see why the death of someone is worth much news. A mention yes but all this? Plus, in this case, it's someone who had disappeared from public view a decade ago. He already had things named after him in every state (that's the goal, anyway); all they need to do is add 'memorial' and it's done.
I will stop before getting political.
