POLITICS: 20th Century Sunset

I have to say, the whole Reagan memorial week, coming on the heels of the dedication of the World War II memorial and the last D-Day anniversary that most of the veterans of that war will attend, felt like a funeral for the 20th century. Oh, there were end-of-century retrospectives in 1999, but we're now far enough into the new century, with enough new problems and traumas behind us to give some distance and perspective, to see more clearly the century that preceded. The involvement of so many of the other key figures of the last half of the century in remembring Reagan - Thatcher, the Pope, Gorbachev, Walesa - underlined that.
