LAST CALL: Hamilton no doubt rolling in his grave

Here's a pop quiz: Who's on the dollars 10 bill?

Well, it could be Ronald Reagan if conservative activist Grover Norquist has his way. He's been talking about mounting a major PR campaign.

Norquist is dead serious in his desire to honor the Reagan 'legacy.' And he says people who determine the nation's historical memory help shape the thinking of future generations.

Before you pooh-pooh the attempts as a passing phase, Norquist and his Americans for Tax Reform already have a proven record of success.

It was his willingness to work the talk radio circuit, hold press conferences, and motivate his allies in conservative groups that helped spur Congress to pass legislation renaming Washington, DC's National Airport after Reagan.

However, Norquist admits that while getting Reagan on the dollars 10 bill is his dream, it will be somewhat tricky to achieve for a living ex-president.

Ron had better hire an official taster, we reckon.
