A Tribute to the Gipper

This being the centennial of Ronald Reagan's birth, I've been thinking about an appropriate tribute.

There's been talk of adding dear old Ronnie to Mount Rushmore. But, well, money is tight right now, and besides there's already a reminder of the Great Communicator that we can all enjoy without spending a penny.

Whenever you see a homeless, mentally ill person, wrapped in a dirty blanket, wandering the streets of your town muttering to himself, think of Ronald Reagan, who taught us to count ketchup as a vegetable, and who de-institutionalized the mentally ill, because it was the right thing to do.
