I remember the whiskey and neon of those days. The sun would set at 7 pm every night over Fremont Street, and I would pretend that my childhood still stood with the El Rancho. There forever remained silver dollar-slots in my head, and the roar of a public winning the night.

I do.

Do you ever use music as a way to measure time?

Found truth.

Found truth.

I just passed Adam, I said, ‘Adam, you’re 40, do you have anything to say?’ And he said, obscurely, ‘How long do I have to sing this song?’

The truth is, when all is said and done, one does not teach a subject, one teaches a student how to learn it.

"I could have jumped upon the shoulders of each as they hung, after the ancient manner of rendering death certain"

Benjamin Brown French
Commissioner of Public Buildings

P.S.: He was also the guy who held Booth back during the second inaugural when he was storming forward for no “apparent” reason.

"A House Divided."

If we could first know where we are, and whither we are tending, we could then better judge what to do, and how to do it.
We are now far into the fifth year, since a policy was initiated, with the avowed object, and confident promise, of putting an end to slavery agitation.

Under the operation of that policy, that agitation has not only, not ceased, but has constantly augmented.
In my opinion, it will not cease, until a crisis shall have been reached, and passed.

‘A house divided against itself cannot stand.’
I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free.

I do not expect the Union to be dissolved—-I do not expect the house to fall—-but I do expect it will cease to be divided.

It will become all one thing, or all the other.

Either the opponents of slavery, will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in course of ultimate extinction; or its advocates will push it forward, till it shall become alike lawful in all the States, old as well as new—-North as well as South.

They die.

In the fall of 1862, Native tribes in Minnesota waged war on white settlers out of frustration from starvation, mistreatment and harsh conditions. After soldiers captured over 300 Indians, President Abraham Lincoln approved the largest mass execution in U.S. history on 38 Dakota men. On the day of their hanging, an estimated 4,000 spectators watched them hung.

No. I didn’t. I didn’t mention it to anyone… not even Andy. I didn’t even give him a chance to talk about it. And I think I’m going to regret that… for as long as I live.
