I mentioned yesterday (here and here) that I remembered listening, in my schoolboy Goldwaterite days, to the powerful speech by Ronald Reagan in 1964 that didn't get Goldwater into the White House but that did bring Reagan to national political prominence.

I thought it was at the Republican convention at the Cow Palace in San Francisco. It wasn't; it came after the convention was over, as a nationwide TV address during the campaign. Apologies for the mistake.
