This is also the last day to experience “Genghis Khan: The Exhibition” at the Reagan Presidential Library and Museum. Most of us learn in school about Genghis Khan the brutal barbarian, but here we also learn about Genghis Khan the civilizer and lawmaker responsible for introducing pants, the Pony Express, paper money, and the passport to Western culture.

Interesting! The Reagan Library and Museum is the only stop in Southern California for this international exhibition.
