Lincoln at 200

Six more days -- February 12 -- is the birthday of Abraham Lincoln. It will be the 200th anniversary of his birth.

More books have been written about Lincoln than about any other American, according to Bill Moyers. Some believe there are more books on Lincoln than any other historical figure except for Jesus Christ.

Listen for some reference to Lincoln in President Obama's speech Monday. How he mentions Lincoln in the context of the Civil War, slavery, and the other issues of the day may give a hint as to how Obama will move on his agenda for us today.

I will be in Ohio for most of next week, but I will be listening Monday and hope you will be listening too.
