What I'm Reading

I'd love to hear more about the Reagan book. I have been reading many of his speeches and some of his autobiography and I am astounded at how obvious and genuine his faith is. Also, it is fantastic (and somewhat convicting) how readily this translated for him into optimism and good will towards everyone.

Two things:
As a military member I can assure you that it was not negotiations or 'peace talks' that ended the Cold War. Once the Soviets learned that we could place an ICBM directly on top of one of their silos the Cold War ended-not before. There are no treaties between men and lions- President Reagan knew that and the sooner the civilized world learns this lesson the better.
Also, Dr. Grant, I think that you might enjoy the writings of Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn (pseudonym Francis Stuart Campbell for a time). A truly educated man, quite the polyglot, but tempered with Christian humility. All the best.

John: Yes, I have read Kuehnelt-Leddihn with great profit. His book Leftism is a classic.

Mark: The Reagan book very enlightening. But, I find his own writing even more helpful. You're on the right track to read his speeches. I also recommend Peggy Noonan's two books on Reagan.
