Recalling Reagan: NPR needs to get its stories straight

Cokie Roberts and Nina Tottenberg needed to share notes before discussing the Reagan years on Morning Edition. Aunt Cokie: Reagan's GOP Congress made tax cuts possible. Nina: Democratic Senate made Reagan judicial appointments (including Robert Bork) impossible. Flip a coin.


By the way, Aunt Cokie sounded like she too had been travelling the highway to Big Sur this morning. Nothing like asking her to reflect: It makes me realize that the mirror is losing its luster.
