For the Gipper…

It’s really sad that this had to fall on our 12th wedding anniversary…

I remember back in 1986, downtown Manhattan was closed down for the President’s motorcade. I was there.

As Reagan’s motorcade drove by, I saluted him.
He looked right at me, smiling, and saluted back.

To echo Sammy Hagar’s quote FROM that same year: “He’s the coolest motherfucker we’ve had in the White House in years!”

Rest in peace Mr. President.
I’ll never forget that day in 1986. Ever.

I’ll address the Reagan family’s open criticism of President Bush over his stem cell research ban some other time. Both President Bushes combined couldn’t hold a candle to Ronald Reagan.
