News was Compiled Daily from Various News Agencies, almost exclusively via my Cell Phone. Stories are referenced by news agency along with the reporter (if it was included with the story, sometimes the writer/reporter is not included, and sometimes, especially when I first began doing this, I inadvertently ommitted the source).

Warning: Some of the news is graphic and can be disturbing to read. Disturbing things happen in our world and they are reported by various news agencies. Almost everything I personally read on my cell phone news is included below, verbatim (meaning it is word for word even if all of the below is not in quotation marks. Quotation marks are implied, unless I've made a comment in brackets).

Am Military Vets. New Memorial in Wash D.C.
Ronald Reagan has died at age 93—on Saturday in his Bel-Air home, the nations 40th president told the world in November of 1994 that he had been diagnosed with early stages of Alzheimers , an incurable illness that destroys brain cells. His body was expected to be taken to his presidential library & museum in Simi Valley, CA and then flown to Washington to lie in state in the capitol rotunda. His funeral is expected to be at the National Cathedral and then the body returned to California for a sunset burial at the library. Reagan lived longer than any U.S. President, and spent his last decade in seclusion because of the disease. Surviving ex-presidents today include Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, George Bush Sr., and Bill Clinton.

A month ago Nancy Reagan told the media that ‘Ronnie’s long journey has finally taken him to a place where I can no longer reach him” Reagan’s oldest daughter, Maureen, from his first marriage to Jane Wyman died in August 2001 at age 60 from Cancer. By the way—she had been scheduled as a guest speaker at the Care & Kindess conference at the Crystal Cathedral for 2002 until her unexpected death. Three other children survive, adopted son, Michael, from his first marriage, Patti Davis and Ron from his 2nd marriage , from ’81 to’89 Reagan reshaped the Republican party reshaped the Republican party in his conservative image, fixed his eyes on the demise of the Soviet Union—and E. Europe communism and tripled the national debt to 3 trillion in his single-minded competition with the other super power.

Before Reagan became president he had been involved in radio broadcasting, acting, television performing and now is a spokesperson for General Electric Co. as well as a two term governor for the state of California. Reagan was known for his strong opinion about needing to downscale government saying government is not the solution, it’s the problem. He challenged welfare and other handout programs that had been started by FDR’s New Deal. He managed also to achieve arms control agreement between the U.S. And the Soviet Union . He was criticized for suspicions that he had authorized secret arms sales to Iran while seeking their aid to gain release of American hostages in Lebanon.

Despite that, he left office in 1989 with the highest popularity ratings of any retiring president in the history of modern day public opinion polls (according to ABC), The reason for his popularity, some say, was his ability to communicate and connect with ordinary Americans even though some of his policies infuriated the liberals. At age 69, Reagan was the oldest person ever elected president. He came close to death when he was struck by at least one of six bullets fired—which came close to his heart. On March 30, 1981, Regan was leaving a Washington Hotel after addressing labor leaders when a young drifter John Hinckley fired six shots at him. His wit even in times of gravity is shown by his comment to his wife. Shortly later, saying, ‘Dear, I forgot to Duck.” Another time as he was going in for surgery he quipped to the surgeons, “ I hope you are all Republicans.” Four years later he was re-elected, defeating Walter Mondale, while winning 49 of 50 states.
