New Reagan Honor

Former President Ronald Reagan has an airport and library named after him, as well as buildings across America and a park in Warsaw, Poland. Now a new California license plate, featuring a picture of “Dutch” wearing a cowboy hat, has been made in his honor. “I’m really pretty excited about this,” former First Lady Nancy Reagan said Monday at a ceremony in Los Angeles in which California Gov. Gray Davis signed into law a bill authorizing the new plates. “I can’t wait to get out and get my license plate,” she added. But wait she must, for although Davis signed the bill it does not take effect until Jan. 1 — and there are 10,000 eager Californians who already applied for the tags ahead her.
