Today is a monumental anniversary–the 25th anniversary of the nomination of the greatest President in my lifetime, Ronald Reagan. 25 years ago, today, then-California Gov. Ronald Reagan was nominated to be the Republican candidate for Prez during the Detroit-based 1980 Republican National Convention (at Joe Louis Arena a/k/a “The Joe”). A great day in history, indeed. (Thanks to the Detroit Free Press for remembering this.) The day I first met him, at the White House, in Summer 1986, was one of the greatest days of my life. We miss you, President Reagan.
