The Long Goodbye

I've much of the todays funeral proceedings for President Reagan. As I've stated before, he is the first President I remember, and I think there will always be a part of me where he is still the President.

One small thing I noticed amidst all the beautiful pomp and circumstance today: At the end, the Marine who played Taps on the bugel was named Woodrow "Woody" English. As most know, Ronald Reagan got into show business broadcasting Chicago Cub games on the radio in Dubuque, Iowa. The shortstop on those Cub teams of the early 30's? Elwood "Woody" English.

I think Dutch would have liked that.
