He came in at # 15.? I find it hard to believe that Ronald Reagan is in the top 5 and Edison didn't make it.? The rest of the top 5 I agree with.? Ben Franklin, M.L.King Jr, Abe Lincoln, and George Washington.? I guess this kills this thread, huh? :wink:

No, I can rebuild the thread, make it better!? It will never die HA HA HA HA!? (Ok sorry for the craziness, yeah I guess it's dead...)? I think he should have made it to at least the top 5!? I mean come on, if it were not for him you probably wouldn't be sitting in front of your computer right now.  There wouldn't even be a greatest american TV show in the first place without edison!
