What Jack knew

The Heritage Foundation’s Edwin Feulner, remembering the late Jack Kemp:

I remember standing with him in Moscow’s Red Square in 1990. The Cold War was starting to thaw, but few even suspected that the Soviet Union’s days were numbered. Jack knew. As we stood on the square, in view of the Kremlin, he pointed out an astonishing sign: The line for the new McDonald’s restaurant was longer than the line for Lenin’s tomb.

And now Jack Kemp is gone and I’ll bet you more people are waiting for the return of the McRib than the debut of the Chrysler Cinquecento.
