Caspar Weinberger passed away. The Talk of the Nation piece on him makes mention of his being a WW II veteran and a fan of Churchill...which is not necessarily something that leaves a wholesome taste in one's mouth as a South Asian and person from the "Third World"... Also mentions his being a gentleman and treating the press well even if they criticized him. That's the kind of attitude we need to remember in this day and age.
Besides that, not much to say there that I can think of right away, except to trot out the post on Reagan's death...
RIP, Cap Weinberger.
