RIP Ronnie

Ronald Reagan has died. Being a young pup, he was a little before my time.

Born in 1911 in Tampico, Illinois, Reagan began his career as a radio sports announcer at the WHO radio station in Des Moines, Iowa. He later moved on to Hollywood, starring in over 50 films in two decades.

Reagan took office a few months before my birth in early 1981, and served two terms. That's about all I know about Ronnie. He seemed like a good guy, and he lasted a good few years longer than most. All that's left to do is raise a glass to the guy. Rest in peace, fella.
