At Disneyland, only one person, a woman working one of the rides, took note of my Ronald Reagan t-shirt.Â (Well, at least she was the only one who acknowledged to me that she had taken note of it.)Â She made an approving comment about the great man I chose to honor on this day.
I asked if she had backed the guy who lost the chance to take office today.Â No, “we needed a change,” she said, but shared my warm feelings for the Gipper.
I found it hard to believe that someone who supported a man who faced a financial crisis by holding the line on federal spending could back a candidate who favors a vast increase in such spending, but there it was.
Yet, another sign that in a relatively ideology-free election, our new president had the right campaign slogan. People wanted change.Â Let’s hope he delivers the right kind of change.
