Hanoi Jane


As we approach observing Memorial Day on Monday, May 27, honoring the American veterans, I picked up on a news report (CNN) three or four weeks ago that related to the Vietnam veteran.

It seems Jane Fonda had been offered to play the part of Nancy Reagan in an upcoming movie. It must relate to Ronald Reagan, who was the president then, and the Vietnam War, as it drew some strong criticism from some Vietnam veteran groups to boycott the movie.
