It's Abraham Lincoln's World, We All Just Live In It

I thought that was a pretty good tribute to the nation's 16th President right there. Besides, living in central Illinois means you are in center of All Things Abe. I don't mind it, really, but sometimes it goes overboard.

The 200th anniversary of his birth today? That's not so overboard. I'm enjoying the day off.

Oddly enough it's also the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin. Their mighty shadows still loom over science and politics today.
