Quickchange.com labeled Reagan's two-term presidency the "Bonzo years" and posted a selection of as many as Reagan's real and reported gaffes that they could find. Deoxy.org pointed out that one anagram of "Ronald Wilson Reagan" is "Insane Anglo Warlord." Other reported quotations are available here.

Reagan and the Press

Online news sites have devoted thousands of words and photos, audio and video, to Ronald Reagan. In Dixon, where Reagan attended high school, the local paper links to an outside group's tribute site and offers a host of locally focused articles.

MSN's Slate site includes several years' worth of articles, including Christopher Hitchens's "Not Even a Hedgehog: The Stupidity of Ronald Reagan" and "Ron and Mikhail's Excellent Adventure: How Reagan Won the Cold War" by Fred Kaplan.

CNN.com features a package full of galleries, stories, video and audio clips. The "in his own words" gallery is a nice touch, offering pictures of the former president next to some of his more memorable quotations.

The New York Times has a slick flash presentation that offers five short videos on different aspects of Reagan's life including an interesting segment about his early days in Hollywood. The Times's Steven Weisman narrates all of the segments.

Oliver North reminisces about the "greatest president of my lifetime" in a three-part series on Fox News. The site also offers Fox fans an opportunity to pay tribute Reagan in a segment called Mourning the Gipper.

ABC News offers a couple of interesting pieces on Alzheimer's -- one on Reagan's battle with the disease -- and another focusing on ways to stop the disease.

CBS News resuscitates a 1989 poll claiming that Reagan had a 68 percent approval rating when he left office.

MSNBC is chockablock with Reagan special features, including a useful interactive "where are they now" guide to some Gipper-era luminaries (about three-quarters of the way down this article), both famous and infamous, including Alexander Haig, Caspar Weinberger, Margaret Thatcher and John Hinckley Jr. Also see the BBC's story on the special relationship between Thatcher and Reagan, as well as interesting insights on Reagan's international stature.
