Shakopee vice-chair among many to view Reagan

One of the thousands of visitors to former president Ronald Reagan's casket in the U.S. Capitol was Glynn Crooks, vice chairman of the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Tribe of Minnesota.

Crooks was in full tribal dress, complete with eagle feather headdress. He waited four hours in line, starting at 5 a.m. yesterday morning, The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.

"I feel that I did what I wanted to do," Crooks told the paper. "It was important for me to pay my respects. It was a very moving experience."
