On Lincoln's 1861 Inaugural

a) He was 100%, not 80%, not 90%, 100%, accommodating to slavery (pledged to support the Corwin Amendment, enforce the Fugitive Slave Act, and even adhere to those resolutions of the Crittenden Amendment which had made all nullifications of the Fugitive Slave Act itself null and void). b) He threatened to invade all southern states who refused to pony up on the tariff.......That's checkmate, folks, at least on a sane planet it is.

Only those of like mind and the wind are hearing this Will. The rest will simply and erroneously denigrate your efforts.

But I admire your tenacity.

I should probably go back to writing about Greta Garbo and Montgomery Clift, huh?
