Ronald Reagan was responsible for some spectacularly nasty things. He was also (as I have noted here before) hugely misrepresented by the media. Mark Steyn glosses over Reagan's nastiness, but makes clear that the real guilty, back in the days of my youth, were those who glossed over the evil of Reagan's, and our, enemies. As so often, Steyn's words on Reagan's death make another piercingly sharp opinion piece. I defy anyone to name a better columnist working in the English language today.

Not possible. Steyn is national treasure…..not sure which nation sometimes, the lines are a little blurry, but that's a good thing. Maybe you could say an anglo-spheric treasure.
