I wonder if President Reagan would be attending this event if he were still alive.

Interesting (and funny) story.....

I got a chance to hear Lech Walesa speak at my University. Walesa did a question and answer session in which one of the people in attendance asked him about his opinion of Gorbachev. I will never forget Walesa's reply:

"Gorbachev never renounced communism. He wanted to make it more effective and the world was so impressed by his complete failure that they awarded him the Nobel Prize."

There was another moment after the speech when an elderly Polish man who had been in the Polish resistance to Communism and Nazism in WW2 and after before fleeing to the US called Walesa his idol. Both men hugged each other on stage.
