Must Do

2 Dec

We watched LINCOLN.  You should go.  As soon as possible.  Even if you live or have lived in Lincoln, Nebraska, like several of my readers.

I have never seen Abraham Lincoln walk, but I’m pretty sure Daniel Day Lewis got it spot on.  His physicality was breathtaking.  And the movie did such a nice job with a narrow scope–wish I could gt my students to write so narrowly.  It was amazing.  And sad.  And beautiful.  I’m still thinking about it and will be for some time.

Wow.

    Hello from Lincoln! I definitely want to see that movie–even more so now. I plan to read Team of Rivals first, though. Studying up and all that. I just tonight finished Volume II Lyndon Johnson, so I’m ready for a little 19th century politics. Thanks for the recommendation.
