Wow! You took the words right out of my mouth. I've made this point in several posts in this forum, and on other forums. I learned of both of those presidents from my World Almanac and Book of Facts one day when I was just leafing through it just to read it.

I was a young adult in the 1980s and I saw it hit a low then. (Since this is really a thread about AGRs in books and films, I'll save my rant about the 1980s for another post).
Ironically, when people started getting online I was afraid it would increase intolerance as it would spread our culture around the world. In reality it had the opposite effect.
