Happy Birthday, President Lincoln #3 -- February 12, 2010

Today is Abraham Lincoln's 201st birthday. My favorite president.

"A capacity, and taste, for reading, gives access to whatever has already been discovered by others. It is the key, or one of the keys, to the already solved problems. And not only so. It gives a relish, and facility, for successfully pursuing the unsolved ones." -- Address Before the Wisconsin Agricultural Society, September 30, 1859
