Reagan's Apotheosis

(Link)
Did I miss something, or has Reagan become a god? Perhaps I am exaggerating a bit by even asking such a question, but, really, look at all of the pomp and circumstance surrounding his death. I mean, don't get me wrong, I believe in honoring a man, particularly a (any) president when he dies, but I don't believe in giving him *too much* honor to the point of deification. He was a man like any other; he rejoice, he mourned, he performed good deeds, he had skeletons in his closet, he laughed, he cried. He was a man, certain, according to some, a man of outstanding character and even policy. Every man has his moments of greatness and every man has his flaws. None of us are "great men" or "great women", not one man to my mind could even qualify as "good". Men do good things, but I am hesitant to call any man "good" by his very nature. We should give respect where respect is due, but we should not honor men as next to gods.

So, that's my rant for the day...
