Caspar Weinberger, Secretary of Defense under Ronald Reagan, died yesterday, I heard late last night. Of course, he was one of the folks involved in Iran Contra. But Bush 41 pardoned him just before Bill Clinton took office.
I woke up with the strangest thought: Weinberger was in charge of our invasion of Grenada in 1983; they don't make wars like that anymore, do they? Oh, that they did.
