Paul Krugman / New York Times:
Debunking the Reagan Myth  —  Historical narratives matter.  That's why conservatives are still writing books denouncing F.D.R. and the New Deal; they understand that the way Americans perceive bygone eras, even eras from the seemingly distant past, affects politics today.
