For an essay on Americana, specifically Tampico, Illinois, birthplace of President
Ronald Reagan

When his parents needed a babysitter, they could pass Baby Ron thru a window to a couple in the next apartment. As an adult, Reagan’s favorite snack was jelly beans. I pictured him doing some reminiscing.
