1. Keep reading and thinking.

2. Read Edmund Morris's first-cut biography of Ronald Reagan _Dutch_.

3. Morris is a first-class Historian and biographer ---- Brit.

4. Wait for the Verdict of History.

5. Don't believe this sour-grapes twaddle that the Hard Left continues
to pump out ---- designed to destroy Reagan's place in History ---- and
Thatcher's ---- pure leftist spin.
