Prior to the adjournment of the Assembly, Minority Leader P.K.

  1. when I was 10 years old ,as part of a school assignment, I wrote a letter to Governor Reagan,asking him what his definition of patriotism was,it was 1972 and we were studying american history to get ready for the bicentennial in 4 years.
    I still have his hand signed reply framed in my bedroom,I had it verified by the Reagan Library as an actual hand-signed personal letter, his answer still applies today,it is shocking how well it fits what is happening to this country right now
