Today, the 30th of January, is the birthday of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who vies with Lincoln for the title, "Best and Greatest President of All Time." 4 terms, baby. It's unconstitutional to hold a candle to that.
And to boot, tommorrow, the 31st, is the 140th anniversary of the passage of the 13th Amendment, the abolition of slavery in this country. Best part of my job is when I get to casually mention these facts during the introductions before the play.
