Almost daily I find myself wanting to write in response to some ridiculous letter printed in the paper. Usually I decide to just let the ignorant remain at peace in their bliss. Recently one such author Googled some "facts" about presidential rankings. I don't pretend to know from which site he got his information, but I'm quite certain that most intelligent people rank Ronald Reagan as one of our best -- certainly one of the most respected and admired. I have found an interesting ranking list as well. It actually lists his hero, that Obama guy, as placing 5th all time. It reads like this:
Lincoln and Reagan tied for first.
17 others tied for second.
23 others tied for third.
Never miss a local story.
Jimmy Carter was fourth.
That Obama guy is fifth.
Hopefully, this will clear things up for those of whom I spoke earlier.
