In Defense of Ronald Reagan

November 15, 1990

In answer to the letters of Shirley Wolf and Phil Pister on naming the new state building for Ronald Reagan (Nov. 8):

Yes, it is entirely fitting that the man who governed California so well as his fiscal policies proved, a man who as President bankrupted the entire Eastern Bloc, a man who removed the threat of atomic warfare between the Soviet Union and the U.S., thus saving hundreds of millions from annihilation or perhaps saving the human race, a man who caused the Communist tyrants to be deposed in so many countries--yes, it is entirely fitting that the new Los Angeles state building be named in his honor.

In fact this honor is not even enough of a tribute for the accomplishments of Reagan. The whole world should acknowledge what this great American did for it.
