Reagan's Final Trip Home, and Other Musings


The inspiring Reagan remembrances of last week already seem a little distant. As a pleasant reminder, here is an interesting account by Hugh Sidey of the Reagan family's trip back to Simi Valley on Air Force One.

This is a piece from Newsweek about Nancy Reagan's devotion to her husband as his Alzheimer's disease progressed. One of the authors is Eleanor Clift, so you'll see a nod or two in the direction of accepted liberal dogma, but this is still a good read.

Fred Barnes has a Weekly Standard piece out that summarizes the reasons why the 1980 presidential election was so important. For those who lived through that time, it's a good reminder; for those too young to remember, it's a good education.
