While my Grandparents on my mom’s side moved to New Mexico after World War II and my mom went to Pius (when it was on the East Side of Albuquerque), my father’s side of the family was from Cincinnati. That’s where I grew up. I actually grew up in Reading, OH in the same town as new House Speaker John Boehner. We also went to the same high school, the Catholic Moeller High.
All this relates to a 60 Minutes interview of Speaker Boehner that aired yesterday which included a discussion of his upbringing and life in Reading. I wish Boehner was a stronger advocate for limited government, but hopefully he is willing to make the tough (and often unpopular) decisions necessary to get America back on the right track.
