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."
