Holiday

Today is Abraham Lincoln's birthday. At least those of my generation who grew up in Illinois probably all remember that. He's one of those figures who reminds me how much bad can be done, and done without any purity of enlightened decency as we'd think of it today. And of how many gross prejudices and simple errors are no doubt embedded in me.
