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.
