Stealing a March

Passed, Imperfect? reagan-tampico-sign.jpg

The Ronald Reagan Centenary in 2011 looms, and Dixon Illinois is forming a commission to coordinate the celebration.

Where this leaves Tampico, the actual birthplace, is unclear. Reagan spent the bulk of his childhood in the Dixon. The town is bigger than Tampico and holds the Reagan “Boyhood Home.” It’s a house Reagan’s family rented for less than two years, yet the location of mawkish commemorations of the legend.

Brace yourself for a renewed Reagan Naming orgy as the anniversary approaches.
