    Putting politics aside, best wishes for his recovery.

    Politics ? The guy has been out of the public eye for 20 years. Why even mention.

    It's not every day a former president is hospitalized.

    I was a kid when Reagan was shot and Haig's announcement was the first time I realized that there are other people working at the White House. (I know, naive. But I was a kid).

    I mention politics because I didn't want this shifting into a Republican/Democrat shitfest with Reagan-haters, etc. You know that it could, and I hope that it doesn't.

    This takes me back. Next thing you know, James Watt is going to ban the Beach Boys from the National Mall.
