The Reagan is Full Tonight
Given Reagan’s status as “the greatest leader of the free world in the 20th Century,” I think this suggestion from physicist Robert Park’s latest newsletter is a great idea:
THE REAGAN LEGACY: AN EPONYMOUS EPIDEMIC GRIPS WASHINGTON.
The Ronald Reagan Legacy Project is dedicated to making sure that Americans are reminded of Reagan every day as they go about their business. The top priority is to replace Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill. But Reagan is too big for a sawbuck. Too big even for Rushmore. So why not go for the moon? Everybody loves the moon, and it’s badly in need of a real name. Other planets have moons with dynamite names like “Phobos” and “Titan.” What do we call our moon? “The moon.” It’s an embarrassment. Why not call it “Reagan”? We were there first, and we should name it. But we’d better do it before China gets there and names it “Mao.”
