Keeping up with the Lincoln Bicentennial

Contrary to what I previously noted, the celebration of Abraham Lincoln's 200th birthday does not start in three years. It actually starts in two years. It will run until the year after his 200th birthday, for a total of 2 years.

Also, I was just looking over the impressive list of advisory committee members and noticed that actor, Sam Waterston is a member. Waterston portrayed Lincoln at Cooper Union on C-Span a couple years ago. In case anyone hasn't read Lincoln's speech, I have it on line in an easy to read double-spaced .txt format: Lincoln at Cooper Union.

What else? Oh, yeah. I don't like to be hacking on the commission, but I signed up for e-mail alerts a long time ago. As yet, I haven't gotten one and I know there have been many updates since then. I do wish you guys would get with it. Respectfully, that is.
