The Acton Institute’s offices are right across the Grand River from the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum (and what will be Ford’s final resting place). Having passed these sites every day for several years on my walk to work, news of the ex-president’s death was especially poignant.

National Review Online offers an interesting symposium on Ford’s presidency and legacy.

From the other side of the ideological divide, Newsweek provides several retrospective pieces.

A striking thing about Ford that I hadn’t known (or didn’t remember) is that he used the veto no fewer than sixty-six times during his brief tenure. That sounds like a worthy legacy to me.
