Another Legacy


We’ve been hearing a lot about one recent president’s Legacy. Well, there are other legacies to consider, such as Ronald Reagan’s. I just returned from a very nice book party for NROnik Peter Robinson and his excellent new book, How Ronald Reagan Changed My Life. It’s the closest thing to what Rick Brookhiser would call a “moral biography” of the 40th president. Lots of great anecdotes, including a behind-the-scenes look at how the line “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall” came to be (or rather, almost didn’t come to be). By all means, get yourself a copy and read it. And if you bump into Robinson on the street, make sure he does his impression of an Italian Cardinal.
