Twenty Five Years Ago Today .......

President Ronald Reagan was shot by John Hinckley jr while leaving the Hilton Hotel in Washington.

Here's The Presidents account of that day:

Here's a video clip:

An insanity plea was a given. I mean, would you shoot somebody for her?

Several years after the shooting, Queen Buffness and I attended a speech given by Secret Service Agent, Timothy McCarthy. Very interesting to hear from a guy who jumped into the line of fire and took one in the chest.

And to revive an old joke, What's The Presidents favorite vegetable? - James Brady.

C'mon, how often do you get a chance to dust that one off and use it?
