Before we start, word has come that Nancy Reagan died yesterday morning, this is how an era ends. made me think of a bit of T.S. Elliot from The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock

No! I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be;
Am an attendant lord, one that will do
To swell a progress, start a scene or two,
Advise the prince; no doubt, an easy tool,
Deferential, glad to be of use,
Politic, cautious, and meticulous;
Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse;
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous—
Almost, at times, the Fool.
I grow old … I grow old …
I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled

She’ll be missed! RIP and enjoy being with Ronnie again.


The Reagans knew as much as anyone about building a conservative movement, and so it may be fitting to add this here because Jim deMint know a fair amount about it himself. Genevieve Wood tells us:

Candidates for federal and state office are running successfully on conservative ideas—cutting government spending, protecting religious liberty, repealing Obamacare—that have taken hold over the past five years, Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint says.

  1. Nancy (Davis) Reagan surely loved “Ronnie”, as he her, RIP. But, I am not so sure about her own conservatism, with her use of astrology? Btw just a note, but old Philip Melanchton also used astrology. So I am not attacking, just making point to her own eccentricity! We all have some! 😉

      Her conservatism? Who knows, maybe she was why Ronnie became one.
      From Wiki…
      In 1929, her mother married Loyal Edward Davis (1896–1982), a prominent politically conservative neurosurgeon who moved the family to Chicago.[1][2] Nancy and her stepfather got along very well;[17] Nancy later wrote that he was “a man of great integrity who exemplified old-fashioned values.”[18] He formally adopted her in 1935,[2] and she would always refer to him as her father.[17

    I used to read horoscopes daily. To see what’s up for myself and three former wives and my present one. I had to stop taking the paper. Years ago.
    Yes RIP Mrs. Reagan.
