Gorby had had a rough week.
I thought that he held himself out as a class act during the whole Reagan funeral service. Just about every speaker ripped on the USSR
and the "evil empire" and Gorby just sat there and took it.
Whether he's reformed or not, one doesn't rise to the Presidency of the USSR
without being a firm believer of communism. It had to sting a bit to hear all those things about one's country.
