Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev relax at Reagan's California Ranch. President Reagan gave this cowboy hat to Mikhail Gorbachev, which he promptly put on backwards. 1992

  1. Compared to Stalin, Krushchev and Putin Gorbichev wasn't a bad guy. Rest in Peace Gorby

  2. Two great men who fought for freedom, not knowing those they fought for gave it all away.

  3. That very day I was in a soar plane out of Santa Ynez. Some great thermals that day. I was following the ridge when they kicked me out of the airspace. Reagan's western White House was just the other side of the ridge. I was nearly 10,000 but had to turn away from the best thermals.

    I did like Mikhail Gorbachev.

    Story goes that as a kid in WWII Groby's life was saved by Spam from the US. He never forgot that and set an inclination to view the west and especially the US in a good light. Reagan knew how to relate to him, and Nancy and Raisa got along very well, too. Had Gorby not been the man in the arena at that time, along with Reagan, Thatcher, JP2, and a few others, things may have gone very differently in the world.

  5. I'm thinking Gorby's hat is on backwards.
