I enjoy the many people who think they are the Founding Fathers, or think they at least knew them. All I ask is that those who write in with all of their supposed "facts," please double check them.

Kim Skinner (Readers' Forum, May 12) suggested that the Founding Fathers believed in opposing socialism and communism. At my last check: Constitution (1789), Karl Marx's Das Kapital (1867). Unless the Founding Fathers possessed a time machine, I don't think they opposed communism.
