Please join us as some of Minnesota’s strangest organizational and individual bedfellows once again gather – some might say really surprisingly this time around — in the ecumenical spirit of a remarkable scholar, public servant, and friend, the late John Brandl. Many people know that 2011 marks the centennial of Hubert H. Humphrey’s birth.
Many other people know that 2011 also marks the centennial of Ronald Reagan’s birth. Many fewer people likely know about both commemorations – just as not too many people have ever realized that for all their political differences, Reagan and Humphrey also were intriguingly similar in key ways. What might those values and traits be, including and beyond their distinctive civility and cheer?
