The reason Reagan could not tame the deficit is the lack of follow through from the Democrats. Reagan agreed to tax increases LINKED to spending cuts which never came. And for all of Reagan's tax increases, taxes did not return to the level they were at when he cut them.

Each December I gaze into my crystal ball and predict what I believe will be the top 10 stories of the coming year. I almost never get these right but they’re fun to speculate about nevertheless. A year from now we’ll take a look back and see how well I did, unless I didn’t do well at all. In that case we will pretend this never happened for the sake of preserving my fragile self-esteem.

10. The highest grossing movie of 2013 will be Iron Man 3.

The year is shaping up to be one of the biggest in cinema...
