By the way

The preceding post was inspired by this weekend's weird bit of synchronicity: the 60th anniversary of D-Day, and the passing of Ronald Reagan.

In many ways, both were heavy formative experiences for me - Reagan was the first President of my adult years (I still remember Carter, but I was way too young to have more than fuzzy impressions of him), and World War II was the Last Good War in many ways - and I learned much about it in school back in the 1970s and '80s.

Both were significant, and both helped form me and the opinions I hold today. For what it's worth.
