Last week, my family and I visited the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California. A lot of memories came flowing back about my days serving as his Secretary of Agriculture. We lifted the Soviet grain embargo. The President was shot. He told Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev to “tear down this wall.” I presented my vision for the 1985 Farm Bill to the President and the Cabinet only to have David Stockman attack the Conservation Reserve Program. Those were challenging times too.
