One of the many reasons...

that I miss Ronald W. Reagan

so anyway, via the Over Night Thread over at Ace's place, comes this juicy little insight into the mind of Ronald W. Reagan:

Ronald Reagan biographer Craig Shirley, out with his latest page turner, Rendezvous With Destiny, chronicling the Gipper's winning 1980 campaign, reminds us just how much the cold warrior hated communism. "After Reagan was re-elected in 1984," Shirley writes, "the diplomatic tags on the cars used by the Soviet Embassy in Washington were changed to begin with the initials 'FC.' Nobody needed to guess what it stood for." Hint: "F" is an expletive, and "C" stands for commies.
Remarkably, that's exactly the kind of thing that I would do, given the opportunity.

Which was SX.
