SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) -- Waiting good-naturedly for as much as half a day in traffic jams and a parking lot, tens of thousands of people filed past Ronald Reagan's flag-draped casket in an outpouring that forced organizers to extend yesterday's viewing period by four hours.

What a wonderful outpouring of love for President Reagan. I am so thrilled to see this happening. Sorry he is gone, but how touching it is to know he was indeed loved by so many.
On the brighter side, can anyone think of a better lobbyist in heaven than the Great Communicator!?
I am confused. I thought the media said that Reagan was just a dumb warmonger actor who got lucky a few times, and that no one really liked him.
The liberal media just haven't a clue. They still don't believe how much President Reagan was loved by ordinary people.
The public patiently awaits one brief moment to honor a man who represented in his life all that is honorable in his devotion to his country and to freedom itself.
My sentiments exactly, friend.
Obviously, none of this is really happening -- the media would never lie! ;-)
Thanks for the pictures and this beautiful thread.
If you open it, they will come.
In her moment of grief, what a wonderful support this must be for Mrs Reagan. No, her husband certainly wasn't forgotten by us "ordinary" people.
It is just the libs and the media just never got it, not even now.
Beautiful pics -- thanks for posting.
All I could think of today was the Gipper meeting up with Bob Hope. Wouldn't you love to see that?
Even Reagan's funeral is inspirational.
Sure would, my friend, sure would.
I want to know what happened after Kerry had the unmitigated gaul to cut in front of thousands, to be the great hypocrite he is known to be??? Heard Rush warn him off... am suprised there wasn't a riot towards his presence.
And now they're busy trying to do the same to President Bush .. but it's not working either.
You're absolutely right :)
