Today is the 99th birthday of former President Ronald Reagan.
Ronald Reagan is the 1st President of which I was truly aware. I was too young to remember Richard Nixon or Gerald Ford and, though I knew of Jimmy Carter, it never registered to me that he was anyone important. I doubt I'm alone on that.
However, Reagan I knew.
For me, Ronald Reagan will always be the President of the United States of America.
All who have come after have just been the political equivalent of a Fake Shemp.
