Quote of the Day

"Across this country, this is the agenda I have set before my fellow prisoners.

But that's Reaganesque in a way he doesn't intend—the kind of mistake that's not easily attributable to exhaustion or the usual word aphasia that comes quite naturally with aging, where one might be tempted to stick in a sorta-not-quite-right word at a public event just because the right one is out of reach. It's…alarming.)
