    Betsy Bloomingdale, a department store heir's widow who hobnobbed with the world's elite, epitomized high fashion and was best friends with former first lady Nancy Reagan, has died. She was 93... “She maintained that the quality of one's lifestyle does not necessarily depend on wealth; that a sense of style and taste are acquired with knowledge, not money,” according to an obituary from her family. “She's really a fashion icon,” the designer James Galanos told Women's Wear Daily in 2009. “She still has a great figure. She's tall and willowy. She knows what's stylish and what suits her.” When not...

    An airplane landing at Reagan National Airport, over Gravelly Point Park — which some say should be renamed Nancy Reagan Memorial Park. (ted eylan) In the typical whirlwind of legislation comes H.R. 5457, a nice breeze of a bill was introduced this week by Rep. Jody Hice. The Georgia Republican simply proposes that Gravelly Point Park — located on the Potomac River at the foot of the main runway at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport — be renamed Nancy Reagan Memorial Park. It is a petite, scenic and unique park. Aircraft thunder directly overhead, families picnic, and the grand...

    Why does it take death to bring us together? Why not life? Watching Nancy Reagan's funeral on television, the front-row tableau was a picture of unity, in form, if not in substance. There was Gov. Jerry Brown of California, a Democrat, Michelle Obama (D), former President George Bush (R), Laura Bush (R), Hillary Clinton (D), Rosalyn Carter (D) and Caroline Kennedy (D). Democrats and Republicans sat together in common purpose, if not on common ground. Former ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer observed this about Mrs. Reagan: "She didn't harden differences into definitions." What a contrast to what passes for political...

    Editor’s Note: This appeared on the Grove City College's Center for Vision and Values website. On March 30, 1981, at 2:25 p.m., President Ronald Reagan was leaving the Washington Hilton through a side door after speaking to a union group. Outside was a gaggle of staff, secret service, reporters, and bystanders, including one determined to end Ronald Reagan's life at that moment. As the president headed toward the car, a reporter barked out a question. With a smile, Reagan raised his left arm to deflect it. But he could not deflect what was about to fly in his direction. A...

    Hillary Clinton broke a cardinal rule of the angry left –saying something nice about a Republican who recently passed away. After she was savaged for saying Nancy Reagan had been out front in confronting AIDS, an angry backlash ensued, and Clinton quickly fell into line. The controversy was worth seven paragraphs in the New York Times print edition, but reporter and chief Hillary-follower Amy Chozick really let the leftist insults fly in the longer online version (h/t veteran commenter Gary Hall), hitting both the Reagans and Hillary in a nasty tone, under the solemn circumstances: "The problem with Mrs. Clinton’s...
