THE REST OF THE STORY... 

   John Huffman writes: "I was passing thru another attorney's office 
   at work today about 11:50 and he had a radio on, tuned to ABC 
   news.  Paul Harvey was giving his take on the news (Page 2) 
   He mentioned a news item of a congressman had introduced a 
   bill to mint a commemorative coin with Reagan's portrait.  Mr. 
   Harvey said that this would be a first - a living president on a 
   US coin. (Page 3) Being a neophyte webuser/e-mail at work, I 
   tried a practice session, finding an e-mail address for Mr. 
   Harvey at ABC News and sending in a comment.  I referred to 
   the 1926 sesquicentennial half-dollar with Washington and 
   Coolidge.  Also, other commems have living persons 
   (unfortunately).  Examples: Carter Glass, and Eunice Shriver 
   That was just from memory.  But seeing the reference in the 
   E-Sylum to Mr. Harvey being into coins, I am surprised at both 
   the poor research his staff does and his mentioning the error."
