Post Ronald Reagan: Poland's new hero of freedom 

At least Poland recognizes the role Ronald Reagan played in delivering the world from the evils of communism. While liberals in America still shudder at the mere mention of his name, citizens of Katowice, in southwestern Poland, have proposed erecting a statue to the memory of the conservative, anti-communist stalwart, according to Breitbart.com.

The statue of Reagan would replace a statue of Soviet soldiers who drove out the Nazi forces of Germany at the end of World War II, and would rename the city's Freedome Square to Ronald Reagan Freedom Square.

Contrary to Brietbart.com's report, Reagan did not serve as US President from 1980 to 1988; considering that US presidents are sworn in and leave office in the January following any election year, his actual term of office was 1981-1989.

City hall spokesman Waldemar Bojarun said the city would consider the issue and that he had enormous respect for Reagan, but that the cost of the change could be prohibitive... and estimated cost equivalent to $168,000 in US dollars.

If the Reagan memorial does not occur in Katowice, there are already separate plans to erect a Reagan memorial in Warsaw, Poland, the country's capitol. While so many at home are still working hard to besmirch the memory of Reagan, it's interesting that there are those in Europe who still recognize the important role he played in winning the Cold War between communism and capitalism, totalitarianism and freedom.
