I don't think many people remember just what turmoil America was going through when he was President. I think history has already begun to show that he was a much better President than thought at the time. He was always a real statesmen. He had such a weak hand due to what Nixon had done to the Presidency, but yet he tried to make his presidency about healing the division. Many however choose only to remember him as having pardoned Nixon. Which is probably what cost him the election as President.

He also pardoned all those who desserted(sp?) during the Vietnam war...a very controversial move....

Peter Boyle, I would say that he is a big enough name and close enough in time.

Joseph Barbera, who created The Flintstones, Tom and Jerry, Scooby-Doo and scores of other cartoon legends with William Hanna, also died last week. Gerald Ford was #3.

Here in Grand Rapids, WOOD-TV 8, our beloved NBC station, has been covering the crap out of Ford's death. They pre-emptied all their shows from 11pm to 7am Tuesday night so they could cover his passing. Grand Rapids was Ford's home for decades, and there's a museum and an "international" airport named after him.
