I guess I should say something about Ronald Reagan today. I am old enough to remember all of his presidency and the first time I voted he was re-elected despite my vote (I am sooooo old). I’m sure that Jodie Foster has mixed feelings today. It is certainly no secret that I am a pacifist and that is contrary to what Reagan stood for during his presidency. However, I have memories of his loud, clear voice during many times of crisis. In retrospect I’m sure he will be remembered as a strong president who was as big and colorful and as close to the Uncle Sam icon as any modern president could possibly be. I feel a pang of sadness that a piece of Americana has passed. Witnessing history is a wonderful, amazing, fascinating and frightening thing.
