Happy Birthday to Yous

Filed under: ephemera, photos — ted @ 5:41 pm

As Patrick Kurp points out, today is the 198th anniversary of the births of Charles Darwin and Abraham Lincoln, who were both born on February 12, 1809.

Be sure to read the selection from Darwin’s diary, which explains how he lost his taste for poetry as he grew older. I find this endlessly fascinating.

Happy Birthday, fellas.
