Seven score and nine years ago, Abraham Lincoln gave a short speech at a cemetery dedication

The cemetery was in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. "The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here," Lincoln told his audience -- and was he ever wrong about that.

Perhaps tonight you might consider reciting the Gettysburg Address yourself.

Remembering the Gettysburg Address beats the heck out of the competition today -- World Toilet Day or Have a Bad Day Day. Yes, when people constantly prattle 'have a nice day,' it can get on one's nerves -- but telling someone to have a bad day seems like an open invitation to a smack in the jaw.

Some of our Usual Suspects says today is International Men's Day. That tomorrow is designated Children's Day or Universal Children's Day will probably come as no surprise. That follows rather naturally, doesn't it?
