Reagan Legacy Panel Featured in Daily Messenger

The Reagan Legacy panel was featured in the Sept. 17 Daily Messenger article “Not So Fast: Revisiting Ronald Reagan.”

President Mark Gearan and professors Dan Singal (history), Steven Lee (philosophy), David Ost (political science), Craig Rimmerman (political science), and students Peter Gregory '07, Andrew Condiles '06 and Thomas Baptiste '07 were quoted.

According to the article, for some of the five professors on the panel, the legacy was about massive deficit, deregulation, trading arms for hostages and ignoring social welfare issues. For some of the students who spoke up afterward , it was a legacy of hope and strength, of restoring American confidence and bringing about the end of the Cold War.
