FROM THE ARCHIVES: PROPOSITION NATION:

The Boy and some friends are practicing the Gettysburg Address today, so they can deliver it at a Muster Day assembly (Memorial Day for you in the subsequent states). Found these MP3s of Johnny Cash, Sam Waterston, and Jeff Daniels doing it at the great American Rhetoric site.

The Johnny Cash rendition is great. Sam Waterston? Isn't patriotism a bit out of his league.

He should pull a Milli Vanilli with the Cash recording.

Waterson played Lincoln in a movie, and since then has done a lot of Lincoln stuff.

Here's recording of the speech from the 50th anniversary.
