It’s all about avoiding Reagan

We were out of the country when Reagan died, and a friend of like mind told me it was a good thing. Bad enough to have gone through those years (though Morning in America was quite cheery); bad enough to have had a friend witness the absence in his eyes when she met him during his second term; bad enough to see the revisionist hagiography that’s now surrounding his presidency.

So I’m happy to learn we’ll also be out of the country for his 100th birthday.

Back with you on the real birthday of a really good Republican President.

    Lincoln’s? Washington’s? Washington’s men adored him they say. He was full of feeling and sometimes wept when he spoke about matters very close to his heart..

    something else I remember reading: that more his been written about Abe Lincoln than any figure in history besides Jesus of Nazareth – WHERE ARE YOU GOING?
