Reagan Trivia

Here's something I didn't know. This sounds like something I'd expect to read about Teddy Roosevelt:

According to recently-surfaced reports, when Reagan was a radio sportscaster in Des Moines, Iowa back in the fall of 1933, he came to the rescue - gun in hand - of King, who was then a 22-year-old nursing student. King recently recalled the incident to a Des Moines television station, noting that a mugger had come up from behind to rob her, outside the rooming house where Reagan was living. The robbery was thwarted when Reagan appeared in a second-floor window, gripping a .45-caliber pistol, and telling the mugger to "leave her alone or I'll shoot you right between the shoulders."

Pretty bad ass if you ask me.
