Time magazine chose to open their memorial issue of Ronald Reagan with this picture. It was a great choice because of his expression combined with the lipstick on his cheek planted by an admiring woman in New Jersey. I suspect Reagan knew it was there but, realizing the value of how it would look in a photo, chose not to wipe it off. It was a great decision that benefited those of us on the other side of the cameras.
