8. I have to disagree, because for most of the course of that disease
the people who had to survive the real horror of it were his family, not Reagan, himself. He had no clue. That's the mercy of the disease to its victims and the curse of it to their families.

I take no delight in what happened to him or his family. My mother had spotted his dementia in 1982, so she felt a certain vindication around people who worshiped him and pooh-poohed the idea that the great man was losing it.

However, I'd have greatly preferred to see an Attorney General during the Clinton years actively pursue all the criminals his administration produced along with Reagan, himself. They were second in corruption only to this current gang. I'd have preferred to see him spend his remaining years defending himself in court, not pardoned for his crimes by illness.
