Early entry into Europe was the wish of the new democracies; it would help to stabilize them politically and smooth their transition to market economies; and it would ratify the post-Cold War settlement in Europe.
Given the stormy past of that region-- the inhabitants are said to produce more history than they can consume locally --everyone should have wished to see it settled economically.

Furthermore, the Churchill Centre , on its Falsely Attributed Quotations page, states "there is no record of anyone hearing Churchill say this. He'd been a Conservative at 15 and a Liberal at 35!
And would he have talked so disrespectfully of Clemmie, who is generally thought to have been a lifelong Liberal? Show me a young conservative and I'll show you someone with no heart.

The Fulton speech, however, was not the only substantial pronouncement Churchill made that year.
In September of , Churchill delivered an address in Zurich, Switzerland once again at an institution of higher learning. On this occasion he spoke at the University of Zurich and, just as he had in Fulton some seven months before, he delivered a message of great political significance. What Churchill actually meant by this pronouncement has been argued over, endlessly.
Churchill of course is well known for his foresight on many issues but often that wisdom can be miss-construed in the contemporary world.

Eureka College was a natural partner for this exhibit. Their Museum focuses on the life and times of Reagan, with a special focus on his time at Eureka.
They let us borrow a great deal of objects, photos, and memorabilia. Some of my favorites are a pair of cowboy boots with the presidential seal on them, a photo of Reagan as a life guard, and a small model of the home Reagan grew up in. We had a great trip!
We stopped off in Hannibal to grab some early morning coffee, and somehow managed to take every back road in Illinois thanks to my GPS. The whole way back we talked about ideas for the exhibit and shared fun road trip stories. Guests will be able to view the items we borrowed from Eureka, as well as artifacts from the Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California. A reception celebrating the opening of the exhibit will be held on January 18, , featuring special guest Dan Martin of the St.
