How often do you get the opportunity to vote for Abraham Lincoln? Not much any more! Lincoln is one of the five "finalists" for "Greatest American." While I might not quibble with four of them--Lincoln, Washington, Franklin, and MLK, the addition of Ronald Reagan seems like one of those SAT test questions: "which one of these names does not belong in this list?"

For my part, I cast my vote for Martin Luther King, Jr.
