Criticism

Here’s how the Chicago Times in 1865 evaluated President Lincoln’s Gettsyburg Address in commenting on it the day after its delivery. “The cheek of every American must tingle with shame as he reads the silly, flat and dish-watery utterances of a man who has to be pointed out to intelligent, foreigners as President of the United States.”

When it comes to Presidents, sometimes they just can’t please the press.

  1. Hello, my old friend! It’s been several decades since we last spoke. I’m pleased to see you’re still kicking after all these years.
    I’m that geeky young military guy you met in Honolulu back in 1990–the Air Force safety guy who was doing ‘desktop publishing’ on the side under the dba “Graphic Impressions”. I did the layout and design for “Selling Safety in the 90’s” and the redesign/typesetting of several of your earlier books. Seems like several lifetimes ago now…
    I’d sure love to chat with you sometime, if you’re up for it. I live in Atlanta now. I hope you’re doing well and I look forward to catching up sometime soon.
