And Reagan Laughs

Navy scores direct hit on Satellite. Good for us.

Somewhere, Reagan is laughing at “Star Wars” skeptics.

MORE: I guess I should explain what prompted this post. I watched a show this morning about modern US presidents on the History Channel. Basically, they covered Jimmy Carter to Dubya.  The documentary was produced in 2005 and is intended to be shown in classrooms across America.

Basically, the Reagan segment focused entirely on Reagan’s “obsession” with the missile defense idea, Iran Contra, and his lack of management/”senility.” So I had quite a strong reaction this morning upon hearing that we succeeded in shooting the satelitte with a single shot. 

Ace’s commenters have strong reactions, too.
