Real Job

(I <3 this quote. It's been circulating via email for sometime now - I thought I'd share in case some of you out there had not yet seen it. Disclaimer: I haven't verified it's authenticity.)

From Ronald Reagan's recently published diaries.

Entry: May 17, 1986;

"A moment I've been dreading. George brought his
ne're-do-well son around this morning and asked me to
find the kid a job. Not the political one who lives
in Florida. The one who hangs around here all the
time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already
almost 40 and has never had a real job. Maybe I'll
call Kinsley over at The New Republic and see if
they'll hire him as a contributing editor or
something. That looks like easy work."

Aaaah sadly I expected more of you! The quote is fake, and even if you do write that you have verified its authenticity, nobody really takes that for what it actually should mean (a.k.a. that we have no idea whether or not it's true and shouldn't spread it till we know).

That's okay, you're still cool in my books. Not that that means much...
