In honor of upcoming Father's Day -

Some perspective on the founding fathers comes from this NYT editorial on the folly of rushing to exclude a founding father from our wallets. I know the vernacular is "dead presidents" and technically Hamilton - and Franklin, for that matter - are just "dead patriots," but . . . . as the editorial points out - Reagan has a LOT of stuff with his name on it already. And we all know that every middle school opened for the next 10 years will be Ronald Wilson Reagan Middle School. Let's be happy with that, okay?
