The Story of the Berlin Wall Address

In an otherwise marvelous piece on the Berlin Wall address that appeared in the Wall Street Journal this past Monday, Anthony Dolan, my old boss in the Reagan speechwriting shop, got the sequence of events mixed up. If by now you’ve had it up to here with the “tear down this wall” address, I’d understand, believe me. But if instead you’re still interested, you might take a look at my letter to the editor in the Wall Street Journal today. 

The letter explains what actually happened — and how I know.
