They do seem to like that time in history. Last sunday they had on "Rumrunners", very interesting.

That Lincoln documentary was quite interesting. I did not know that he was a VERY manic depressive, and contemplated on killing himself multiple times. His wife was the very same way. In it, they kinda made reference to the fact that his lack of security (in Ford theatre) may have been a subtle attempt to have himself killed.

Good stuff.

If I could only have three TV channels for the rest of my life, the History channel would be one of them.

If and when I launch my all out assualt on Europe I know where Hitler and Napolean went wrong. Do not get caught in Russia during the winter. World domination made easy, thank you History channel.

That and I now know all I need to know about the "history of the gun". When I finally lose my last bit of sanity and break my shaky treaty with Canada. It will make for a great 1 hour special on the history channel.

That's my goal in life. To have a hour show on the history channel, talking about my crazy bid at world domination. The voice over has to be the one guy they use for all of those shows.

Beyond the Da Vinci Code was just on from 6-9. I caught the last hour or so because the NFC football game was what it was. Im sure most of you know what this theroy is about because of the book. What I caught was very interesting and somewhat different ideas than the book. Ron Howard is coming out with the movie sometime this year. Its showing again tonight at 11pm-1am tonight.

You have a degree in the History Channel? That's awesome. I wanted to get a B.S. in ESPN but I was shocked to find that KU didn't offer that degree.

Another one of those Lincoln-Kennedy coincidences that gives you the chills.
