February 6th is responsible for bringing both Ronald Wilson Reagan and Robert Nesta Marley into the world. Both entertainers, they also shared a common love for freedom that was (clearly) expressed in exceptionally different manners.
Bob Marley proselytized to the masses in Dortmund and beyond with song and verse, and Mr. Reagan’s lyrical flair helped tear down that wall in Berlin. Ironically, Reagan is likely responsible for the creation of more music than Marley having, ahem, inspired a generation of musicians. And, I may or may not have had posters of both eminences on my bedroom wall in college. You know what? I won’t even attempt to deny it…”Facts are stubborn things“, after all.
