Working in Ottawa today --War on Drugs & The Ruskies

Good morning folks,
I will be working in Ottawa today.
I had originally thought about Reagan's 'war on drugs' that started this day in 1982, but then thought about the outstanding timing of his 'Tear down these walls' speech.
That was in 1987 and the speech was given in West Berlin and included rhetoric like "Who will tear down these walls?" and then something about a despot that built them, and then something like "Mr Gorbachav, tear down these walls"
It was great luck for Ronald, he was spending huge sums on the 'Star Wars' missile defence grid, Nancy was chewing up a lot of cash telling kids to just say no, and...
The soviets called it quits.
They let the aging wall get torn down in '89 and suffered economic collapse in '91.
Was interesting, the fail had very little to do with anything that Reagan did or said, but common perception was that Ronald 'Ray Guns' Reagan beat the Ruskies.
Timing is everything :)
Have a good day.
