Ronald Reagan, 1911-2004
In a Nutshell
By SUSAN DAVIS
Any kid from Dixon, Illinois can make it..as long as they cultivate a relationship with the FBI, bust a union or two, rat out their Hollywood friends, and fire a few philsophers.
After that, it was a down hill coast for Ronnie.
But why did he call his wife "Mommy?"
