President Reagan's Legacy

As Americans, we have a rich heritage. We have enjoyed unprecedented liberty in the way we think, and speak, and write. We have fought against tyranny and racial prejudice. We have fought for equality and freedom. We have had a glorious history and great presidents.

And none greater, today, than dear Ronnie. Know why? He declared back in 1984 that July was forever after to be known as National Ice Cream Month.

God bless him, he slept through many a crisis, gave us empty-headed slogans like, "Just Say No," and seemed to think that looking good was better than being good, but he was a guy who really appreciated ice cream, or at least the ice cream lobby.

Not only is July National Ice Cream Month, it's also the month in which National Ice Cream Day is celebrated. This year, it will fall on Sunday, July 20th. So, you have just under three weeks to get your recipes out, your ice cream makers tuned up and your cones readied for the Big Day.

I love this portrait of Reagan done in jelly beans. How appropriate!
