It Was Twenty Years Ago Today

We’re renovating some newly leased space adjacent to our office. The contractor was in the other day checking the plans for which partitions to move. I interrupted his work. “Excuse me, but I’ve always wanted an excuse to say this. Mr.Gorbachev,” I pointed, “ tear down this wall.”

He was old enough to be as amused as I was.

One tribute from Mario Rubio in NRO:

As Ronald Reagan said, “Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because
the U.S. was too strong."

Thank you, President Reagan. You did an exceedingly good thing, and it’s a pity how little credit you are receiving, twenty years on.
