    You might recall that John Hinckley was a seriously deranged young man who shot President Reagan in the early 1980's.
    Hinckley was absolutely obsessed with movie star Jodie Foster, extremely jealous, and in his twisted mind, loved Jodie Foster to the point that to make himself well known to her, he attempted to assassinate President Reagan.
    There is speculation Hinckley may soon be released as having been rehabilitated. Consequently, you may appreciate the following letter from Nancy Reagan to the staff at the mental facility treating Hinckley:

    To: John Hinckley
    From: Mrs. Nancy Reagan

    My family and I wanted to drop you a short note to tell you how pleased we are with the great strides you are making in your recovery. In our fine country's spirit of understanding and forgiveness, we want you to know there is a nonpartisan consensus of compassion and forgiveness throughout.

    The Reagan family and I want you to know that no grudge is borne against you for shooting President Reagan. We, above all, are aware of how the mental stress and pain could have driven you to such an act of desperation. We are confident that you will soon make a complete recovery and return to your family to join the world again as a healthy and productive young man.

    Best wishes,
    Nancy Reagan & Family

    P.S. While you have been incarcerated, Barack Obama has been banging Jodie Foster like a screen door in a tornado. You might want to look into that.

    It would have been funnier had it said Bill Clinton or maybe even Hilary.

    I would watch out sending this out to too many people. The Secret Service may want to question why you are promoting violence toward a sitting president. ;)

    It may sound weird, but I think in the end Reagan was some what fortunate that Hinkley was such a nut bag. Obviously him getting shot was horrible, but it could have been worse. A lesser crazy person may have planned it better and shot at Reagan's head or used a bigger gun than a .22 pistol and could have killed Reagan or more seriously wounded him. It was bad that a loon shot Reagan, but fortunately it didn't end as bad as it could have.

    It really came close to killing him. I watched a documentary not too long ago on History Channel that said he almost died while in the hospital.

    But it is the joke that is killing me. LOL
