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.
Jimmy Carter was fourth.
That Obama guy is fifth.
Hopefully, this will clear things up for those of whom I spoke earlier.
