On my mind today
That was 150 years ago today.
My mind keeps going back to JBKO in her oral history, Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy. Jackie tells us that in July 1963, JFK asked Princeton historian David Donald, "Would Lincoln have been as great a president if he'd lived?" Four months later, well, you know.
"It's time for me to go, but I would rather stay."
Oh, Mr. Lincoln, you haunt my imagination!
