To while away the boring hours until the Election Campaign starts up, we could post some bits of Reagan humor here.
The stories you post should be stories reliably attributed as being told by Reagan in various circumstances.
Why do each of you think there is this enormous outpouring of affection for Reagan by the US general public? Nostalgia (ie "for the past" unrelated to Reagan)? Because of his personality? Because of his policies? Accomplishments?
I would be interested in people's opinions. I am not asking what _your_ opinion of Reagan is, nor your opinion regarding public events or newspaper articles. Why do you think all these private citizens are so moved?
