My views have changed somewhat since I was a card-carrying member of the Reagan Youth. But I still have a great deal of respect for the man and what he wanted to accomplish, as well as how he conducted himself personally. I’m also pleased to see that the attempt of CBS to slur his legacy has been shut down, in part due to the inspiration and effort of this man.
The best part, though, is his approach to the fifteen minutes of fame. So many who experience it once are far too willing to whore themselves after it once their time is up This guy, however, handles it with grace, wit and aplomb. I hope I can do the same if mine should ever arrive.
