Sleepwalking Through History

“Ms Thomas, I just read your piece on President Reagan’s diaries. I’m sorry to have to say this, but you had no excuse not to get to know President Reagan. I was a member of the military staff serving at the White House all during the Reagan administration. I’ve met you several times, during both social and business occasions. After all these years I remember well the attitude you displayed during trips to, in particular Santa Barbara and the Ranch. You showed no sense of curiosity toward the President’s policies and I thought showed only the utmost disdain for the man, his Presidency, and his achievements.”
