You know there’s some kind of love interest between the national media and the state when the following things happen:
- A search on Yahoo! on the word “Regan” shows up every possible website associated with former President Ronald Reagan. (Google does not do this.)
- Every major news agency and website lists the memorialization of
Reagan at the top of its stories for a week. Not Iraq, not democracy, not elections, not terrorism even.
- California, seeking to replicate the 1980s, elected a popular actor to its highest office.
By the way, you can send a condolence note to the Reagan family through the auspices of the Reagan Library.
