Wow!

I just read the assassination of Lincoln. Funny to think that it is possible for me to do this, whilst I eat breakfast, at home.

The 21st Century is truly a remarkable time.

Great link. Thanks for posting this!

Hi Johnny — You're welcome! Have you heard of the Chinese blessing, "May you live in interesting times"? This is definitely an interesting time...

The Lincoln assassination headline really left an impression with me, too: "AWFUL EVENT." They put the emotion before the fact of the event. It hints at the shock people at the newspaper probably felt while getting together the copy for this.

Hey Gavin! Glad you found this useful. I'll ping Todd about it, too.
