    Picked up over weekend and cannot put down. Very interesting read and insight into the Reagan years. Doug Brinkley did a great job pulling it together.

    What is clear early on is how engaged Reagan was on big picture matters. I've yet to come across a passage where Reagan complains about how his pants fit.

    No. See. Clinton didn't forget -- he was multitasking.

    Big difference.

    Read the excerpts in the latest issue of Vanity Fair. I must say that Reagan had a wry sense of humor, but only exercised it briefly and accordingly in his passages.

    What does he say about his appearance in that Genesis video where he's a puppet?

    "I can too multitask, Adriana. I am not a retard."

    Reagan was used to making pictures, creating grand illusions.

    At the very bedrock, it was all he knew.

    Prtty much describes 1980-88. In and out, inside out, outside in, don't wake him.
