Boy Sends Letter To Ronald Reagan After His Mother Declared His Bedroom a Disaster Area


As one would expect, Ronald Reagan was the recipient of thousands of letters each month during his presidency — a mailbag so voluminous, in fact, that a gang of patient volunteers were tasked with opening them all on his behalf and passing him approximately 30 each week to read and respond to. Little did he know that among the letters he received one week would be one from 13-year-old Andy Smith, who had been told by his mother that his room was a disaster area. Reagan responded in the perfect way.
