Happy birthday, big guys

Today is the 200th birthday of both Charles Darwin and Abraham Lincoln. I wonder what they would think of today?

Darwin would probably be amazed at the advances in biology and medicine that have been made as a result of his writings, but dismayed at the number of people who still refuse to see the elegant truth he revealed.

Lincoln would probably be heartened by the advancement in justice he set in motion that has resulted in an African-American to be enthusiastically elected to, and currently hold, his old office. He would probably be dismayed at the deterioration of his party, now the home of delusion and corruption.

Well, good on ya, fellas. I'll hoist a beer in your honor.
