One part of the plaza is dedicated to United States Presidents. They're all there… "Franklin Roosevelt, good guy. John F. Kennedy, another good president. G.W. Bush. Ronald Regan,” McFarland said. Wait, what was that? "Umm, Ronald Reagan, and I think his last name is spelled wrong actually," Haeberle said. Really? "Yes, it should be R-E-A-G-A-N, I believe." Ohhh, they mean Ronald Reagan, the 40th President of the United States. "It is misspelled, we will be replacing that," Baker said. Baker wants people to know that the spelling error will be fixed -- Ryan Larrando/KTVB.com.

Question: When it comes to spelling, how would you describe yourself: 1. Spelling bee champ, 2. OK, but don't ask me to spell accommodate, 3. I get by with a little help from my friends, 4. Spellcheck dependent, 5. D'oh, or 6. Other?
