Reagan: No More Tears

What We’re Made Of    reagan-burger-mcdonalds.jpg

Ronald Reagan’s birthday is Friday, and it would appear America’s love affair with the leathery matinee idol can only be sated by fawning tome reagan-god-and-cover.jpg after fawning tome reagan-hand-of-providence.jpg  on the cooing conservative.

We’ve had it in. We’ve done many of the renovations and it was addressed. It’s out now and, at some point in time, we hope to bring it back. But again, that’s the fluidity of a museum. You can’t have the same thing, you know, for ten, fifteen, twenty years. You need to refresh.
