The past few days, with the passing of Nancy Reagan, I was contacted by the local and national media to share some reflections on the extraordinary lives of Ronald and Nancy Reagan. The media obviously knew that I served in leadership positions with the U.S. Conference of Mayor's when Ronald Reagan was President.
When I was learning to fly, one of the lessons was that if you see an object on the horizon that is seemingly stationary but getting larger, watch out. It is probably an aircraft closing with you. Trouble with China in the South China Sea is on the horizon of U.S strategic concerns and getting larger. A major confrontation may be at hand.
