LincolnDoris Kearns Goodwin brings me to helpless tears. That is just the Lincoln part of her talk!
But the talk is lovely also about Lyndon Johnson, a man much under-appreciated by history. "This aging lion of a man."
Her baseball memoir is lovely, too. My first childhood vaguely solid memory is my father saying "Don Larsen just pitched a perfect game," obviously explaining to me some enthusiasm I did not then understand. I was 7 then so it makes some sense.
