The Gipper, Talking Turkey

The offices of National Review are closed today in honor of Thanksgiving. We wish you and yours copious and enjoyable meals, the company of loved ones, a nap, and time to reflect on the blessings of Liberty.

We also offer you this delightful article, “Thanksgiving at the Buckleys’,” from WFB’s last book, The Reagan I Knew. The selection tells the story of Ron, Nancy, and Ron Jr. spending the 1976 holiday at Casa Buckley. And yes, there is some drama.

 

 

 

Enjoy. And God bless.
