hmmmm.....I didn't realize Ronnie had been accused of not being a regular
churchgoer.  Now, that's interesting.  You mean he didn't walk out of church
each Sunday with a Bible tucked under his arm like Clinton did?

Last night on Fox News, Michael Reagan talked about his dad.  Very
emotional.  He said the gift he'd like to give his dad is to say "all your
children have accepted Christ and you'll see them in heaven".  He couldn't
say enough about his dad's sunny smile and disposition.

Yeah, Ronnie was pretty cool.....when your children speak well of you, you
need no greater testimony.
