Todays birthdays

Today is both the double centenary birthday of Charles Darwin and Abraham Lincoln.

Orac has an excellent article on evolution and medicine, while Seed magazine has a fine collection of articles.

Abraham Lincoln, sixteenth president of the United States, led his country during the American Civil War and is an inspiration to many, including President Barack Obama, who chose to announce his candidacy for president in front of the Old State Capitol in Springfield Illinois, where Lincoln made his "House Divided" speech.
