I'm sad. . .

It seems that President Reagan's health has taken a turn for the worse. He's struggled with Alzheimer's for so long. R5 was named in honor of Ronald Reagan, and so we've started talking to him about President Reagan being very ill. In our family, he will be greatly mourned.

I highly recommend Peggy Noonan's biography of Reagan, When Character Was King. Very touching.

Based on your recommendation, I'm buying it this week. I had just read Noonan's "What I Saw at the Revolution" last month, and found it to be the best memoir of the Reagan administration that I'd seen.

Oh, good!

I remember reading "What I saw. . ." several years ago. Personally, I found "When Character was King" to be one of the most inspiring books I've read. I'm looking forward to reading it aloud to the boys when they are just a little older.
