ronald reagan 100 years old in heaven today!

president ronald reagan celebrates his centennial in heaven today. he was born february 6, 2011, and died june 5, 2004, at the age of 93. although i wasn't a fan when he was elected president, by the end of his second term i was one of his admirers. today he's easily my second favorite president, narrowly behind teddy roosevelt.

in honor of his 100th birthday, i'm currently reading "reagan: the hollywood years," by mac eliot. i've read plenty of reagan biographies over the years (including one that focused entirely on his "early" years) - but this is the first book devoted exclusively to his career as an actor and president of the screen actors guild.

happy birthday, in heaven, president reagan!
