Talk On Nancy Reagan

brittbray: I cannot help commenting on all the Reagan coverage. I am a staunch, liberal, fire-breathing Democrat who was raised to HATE Ronald Reagan! But in the last few days, all the bitterness I had always felt for him has melted away. I felt so sorry for Nancy as she laid her cheek to where his face probably was under that flag-draped coffin. I also felt the cameras were a bit intrusive. They should have filmed from a respectful distance and not zoomed in for close-ups!
I have come to realize that no matter what our political differences were, Reagan was a man of optimism and ideals--a man who stood for what he believed in and took the blame when something went wrong under his watch. He had humor and respect for his friends as well as his enemies. And above all, he was devoted to his wife and she was devoted to him. He was a great foreign policy president and our current president cannot even begin to compare!
Believe me when I tell you that my views are not in any way partisan, but I do believe this man deserves his place in history.
No one deserves to suffer like I'm sure he and his family did these last ten years. I do hope Nancy continues the fight for stem cell research on his behalf. My mother has Multiple Sclerosis and I know this disease as well as many others can benefit from a voice like Mrs. Reagan's.

Ann: There is some interesting talk going on at the Harold Ford talk site…It’s seems as though a mysteries person that goes by the user name of “One” has a book coming out and the book is due to be released this next month…We have been trying to guess who “One” really is…Another person who goes by the user name of Mtb2 made these interest guesses.

Mtb2: Do you know what, Harold Honeys? I have been thinking over some mysteries that are happening on this board and placing many pieces together.

I am a very avid reader of books and am constantly trying to figure out what the title of one’s book is.
I searched high and low for “New Releases” coming out in June. Since one is politically savvy and writes biographies/children’s books…there are three theories that are currently swirling in my mind.

1. Former President Clinton is coming out with a new book in June entitled “My Life”. It would be funny and shocking if “one” were Bill Clinton. Ironically, the book will come out on June 22, 2004. Also, Clinton has widely endorsed Harold Ford, Jr. when he gave a speech at Ford’s victory back in 95’.

2. Donna Brazile (former DNC chairwoman?) is also coming out with a new book entitled “Cooking with Grease : Stirring the Pots in American Politics”. Since “one” denied that the book had to do anything with “grease”, I am ruling theory #2 out.

3. This may be far off, but could “one” be Madonna because Madonna also has a book coming out in late June entitled “Yakov and the Seven Thieves.” Since “one” has said that his/her book was biographical, theory #3 is ruled out because “Yakov and the Seven Thieves” is a childrens’ book.

I am leaning towards theory #1. If anyone has any more “theories” or comments about my theories on one’s book, please feel free to post.

Goodnight all.

Ann: Wow...I would love for theory number 1 to be correct too Mtb2...I have always wanted to talk to or meet Bill Clinton...He is one of the few Presidents that is still alive that I haven't got to meet...I did see him speak at the Oklahoma City bombing though...but I never got to meet him... I'd be happy to meet Hillary too…I idolize her a lot. I would say out of all your guesses Donna Brazile is the most believable choice. That would be awesome if you geussed right.

Toya: I was thinking that same thought too Ann. lol
