It was 20 years ago today...

One of the nicer things about being in my 40's is that I have the benefit of remembering events young'ins may have only read about in text books (if they were even that lucky!).

Much to the chagrin of the US State Department, President Ronald Reagan delivered 6 words, in particular, that became the hallmark of the fall of the Soviet Empire.

We would all do well to re-read (or read for the first time, perhaps) the entire speech given that day.

Update: TrekMedic offers a modern-day comparison.
