A Swift two months

It is the last hour of May here in BC and it is time to post a thing or two. Time does indeed fly as the last couple of months evaporated, it seems. I traveled in the first part of April to Washington DC to be part of the sesquicentennial commemorations of Abraham Lincoln’s assassination. Ford’s Theatre did a very good job and the remembrance events were very moving. Pictured is myself with one of the people I was talking to in the street in front of Ford’s Theatre on the evening of April 14. I also traveled to Springfield, Illinois to see the Abraham Lincoln funeral re-enactment ceremonies  that happened at  the first part of May. It certainly was a once in a lifetime opportunity to go and see these events. I should perhaps touch more on these events in the coming month as I reflect on what happened. Also another very interesting thing I happened upon on the web is the fact that Who Killed Abraham Lincoln? has been cited in a doctoral dissertation by Michael James Sobiech. It is entitled THE ETHOS OF CONSPIRACY ARGUMENT: “CHARACTER” AS PERSUADER IN CONSPIRACY RHETORIC and it can be found at http://ir.library.louisville.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=2358&context=etd
