Child writes Ronald Reagan requesting "federal funds"
When Andy Smith's mother declared his room a "disaster area" in 1984, he got the awesome idea to write then- POTUS Ronald Reagan with a request for federal funds to hire a cleanup crew. HyperVocal says, "Surprisingly, the Gipper responded with a personalized letter, politely telling Smith that he person declaring his room a disaster — in this case, Smith's mother — is supposed to make the request, and uses the opportunity to plug his private-sector initiative. Reagan writes, "Your situation appears to be natural. I'm sure your mother was fully justified in proclaiming your room a disaster. Therefore you are in an excellent position to launch another volunteer program to go along with the more than 3,000 already underway in our nation — congratulations." More from HyperVocal.
