Dads Deserve a Little Respect

June 16, 2013

When I was growing up, fathers were held in respect.  You never crossed dad.  The words you feared most were, “Wait until your father gets home.”

Hanoi Jane as Nancy Reagan

You just can’t make this up.

Jane Fonda will be playing Nancy Reagan in an upcoming movie called, “The Butler.”  That’s kind of like Fidel Castro playing George Washington.

Why Jane Fonda of all people?  Must be her physical resemblance to Mrs. Reagan.
