The Lincoln Bicentennial

Happy Abraham Lincoln's Birthday!

TV: I was hoping to see some good Lincoln documentaries on The History Channel, tonight. When I turned the TV on, all I saw on THC was a show about how Hershey chocolate bars are made. On THC International, they showed a documentary about the American Civil War, which mentioned a bit about Lincoln, but it was primarily about the Battle of Antietam. Very annoying. I really wanted to see something about Lincoln the man. Nada. I finally turned the TV off in disgust and just wrote.

On Monday, they're showing something about Lincoln--apparently, there was a conspiracy to steal his body and hold it for ransom. I'd never heard of that before--looks interesting.

I suspect there are some scientists who would love to get a DNA sample if someone really did try to steal Lincoln's body. they'd like to be able to prove whether he had Marfan's Syndrome.

I think it happened a long time ago.

Personally, I'd like to know if Thomas Jefferson really had Asperger's Syndrome.

Really? I'd never even heard he was suspected of having that, before. Neat!

I just watched an interesting special on the Booth conspiracists, the murder, and the manhunt for Booth. It was fascinating. I think it was on PBS, though.
