The more I hear from and about Ron Reagan Jr. the more I like him. This New York Times interview—which is a bit too short, if you ask me—just underscores it.
- He's an atheist. His wife's a Buddhist, which is a philosophy he admires, and sometimes he attends her sangha.
- He's going to do election covereage for MSNBC.
- He's not interested in running for office. (As a atheist, he believes he'd be unelectable.)
- He doesn't think Dick Cheney is a "mindful human being." (Which is more charitable than anything I would say.)
- He did not vote for George W. Bush in 2000.
And my favorite quote from the article.
One thing that Buddhism teaches you is that every moment is an opportunity to change. And we will have a moment in November to make a big change.
We will, indeed.
It is me, or would young Mr. Reagan make a great keynote speaker at the Democratic convention?
