  • What a great transition from step one to step two. Simplicity to higher thinking. Good finds.

  • Regrettably some people know very little about Lincoln, let alone current events.

    When I was a kid I had to memorize the Gettysburg Address. I think it was a good exercise.

    Off topic, but I like the new masthead and look of the Blog. Well done.

  • Forgot to add yesterday that I wonder how many people actually now about the Proclamation nowadays, let alone the limits of what Lincoln could do. My son told me a couple of years ago that there were kids his age (teenager) who didn’t even know who Lincoln was or that he had been president during WW II, etc.
