Today, Stinkweasel staff would like to send a quiet, respectful salute! to President Ronald Wilson Reagan, who passed away on Saturday, June 5th, 2004. Reagan was president from 1981 through 1989.
Reagan was credited with achieving a peaceful end to the cold war fought against Russia and communism, and was the most popular president leaving office in American history.
Reagan finally succumbed to complications following a ten year fight against Alzheimer's disease. You may view Reagan's obituary here.
Rest peacefully, Gipper.
