Isn’t It Ironic

Fallenmonk reminded me that today is the anniversary of The Gettysburg Address.

The first Republican President was engaged in a war to preserve the Union from what would, in the twentieth century, become the base of the Republican Party.

Der Verrückte Philosoph at Peripetia has found the The Gettysburg Powerpoint Presentation for the CEO President.

The tragedy is that it is true. There doesn’t seem to be space in our world today for expressions of greatness. Hit the highlights with the PowerPoint and call it macaroni. We are poorer for it.

Everything is sound bites and no one bothers with real, old line public speaking. Making it worse, many people write that way, so you can’t find out what they think from their position papers.

According to several sites, that address happened seven score and four years ago.

This is indeed the “gross” anniversary of the event, a dozen dozens of years ago.
