Fair & Balanced

Time magazine has a cover of Reagan with a tear in his eye. Lamentations on the wayward conservatives. Fair enough but I propose that the next edition balance the picture:

"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty."
"Finally, to those nations who would make themselves our adversary, we offer not a pledge but a request: that both sides begin anew the quest for peace, before the dark powers of destruction unleashed by science engulf all humanity in planned or accidental self-destruction.

We dare not tempt them with weakness. For only when our arms are sufficient beyond doubt can we be certain beyond doubt that they will never be employed."
- From Kennedy's Inaugural Address, Friday, January 20, 1961
