LETTERS

More than style

June 12, 2004

Even now, The Times is trying to sell the canard that Ronald Reagan was just a lightweight pol with a sound byte way with words. In "Reagan's Gift of Golden Delivery" (June 9), which used the word "style" no less than four times, Shawn Hubler claims that rather than as a statesman or politician, Reagan "will arguably be most broadly remembered as a master of delivery in the age of television." It took more than style or delivery for Reagan to declare "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall," or that "Government is not the solution to the problem, government is the problem." It took political courage and historic vision, and that's how Reagan will be remembered.
