Something To Chew On
Next year is the bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth. While I have a general dislike for coincidences (and fate as a whole), there will be a certain tinge of irony on February 12th. That is because the ceremonies to honor Lincoln, a single term senator from Illinois, regarded as our greatest president for his actions to begin freeing our nation from the tyranny of slavery, will be presided over by president-elect Obama, a single term senator from Illinois, and the first black president in our nations history. Think about that for a while.
