"Not bad, not bad at all."

If you could sum up Speaking My Mind in three words, what would they be?

A brilliant review.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Reagan of course. I liked how he'd poke fun at his age, shows the senc eof humor he had.

Have you listened to any of Ronald Reagan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have. One of his best.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I don't know if a film of this could be made actually.

I miss Ronnie! Wish he was here.

People ask me who I want to vote for. I usually respond Ronald Reagan or Abe Lincoln but they're not running. I suspect Trump will win and I hope he surprises us in a good way. I think he can but not sure he will. Pray for our country and our representatives in government to exercise integrity and do the right thing.
