Ronald Reagan was a great president. The amount of change that happened under his watch, the tectonic shifts in world politics, the fall of the iron curtain. His summit meetings with the equally inspirational Gorbachev are all memories I have from my childhood.
A time when there were two clear sides – the goodies and the badies (at least thats how they were presented to the world).
What I didn’t realise until recently when someone brought these to my attention is how FUNNY Reagan was, and how risque his jokes about the soviets were. Apparently he was quite a connoisseur of self-deprecating soviet humour.
