Former First Lady Nancy Reagan has died. My condolences to her family and her many admirers.
I want to share one thing with you that immediately sprang to my mind when I heard the news.
“Virtually every major move and decision the Reagans made during my time as White House Chief of Staff was cleared in advance with a woman in San Francisco [Joan Quigley] who drew up horoscopes to make certain that the planets were in a favorable alignment for the enterprise.” -Michael Deaver, from his memoir, For the Record: From Wall Street to Washington, (San Diego: Harcourt Trade Publishers, 1988).
I don’t miss the 80’s.
