Lincoln and Darwin Two men who re shaped the world as we know it and are as controversial today as they were in their own day. Darwin has been a hero of mine for years and Lincoln, while being more of a chameleon, has grown in worth in my eyes since Obama took office. (There's nothing like right wing screeching to make one bone up on history.) however, I am also immensely appreciative of the NYT's series Disunion. The devil truly is in the details. I salute both of these men for having made me and the country I live in, better.
