Today In History - Ronnie Takes One For America...

...and so did White House Press Secretary James Brady, Secret Service Agent Timothy McCarthy and District of Columbia Policeman Thomas Delahaney. Amazingly, President Reagan, who had been shot through a lung, walked into the hospital - amazing for anyone let alone a 70 year old man. He maintained his cool and his sense of humor and quipped to his wife Nancy that he had forgotten to duck. Then he asked his doctors to please tell him they were Republicans. He survived and he did not let an assassination attempt slow him down or deter him from his duty to our nation. He was, without a doubt, the best president of my lifetime to date. More here.

All the best,
Glenn B
