A gentle reminder ...

The goal of this blog initially was for Mr. Mc to show his students and friends what he doing while in Pennsylvania and DC in 2011. Now it's being used as a place for him, travelling colleagues and former students to discuss edumacation and history related "stuff" as well as ... well, anything which pops into his head. Mr. Mc would never knowingly embarrass either the school he loves or the family he is devoted to. By joining in the discussion, he expects the same of you.

Mary Todd Lincoln: Ninja!

Just came back from seeing Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. I walked out of the theater thinking I needed to remember to send back my Sherlock DVD to Netflix. I had pretty much forgotten the movie by the time we hit the lobby.

I really liked the book. It was fun and didn't do a bad job with the history. It didn't seem to take itself too seriously. It is one of the few books I've imediately re-read.

I liked the movie Lincoln. I liked the movie Mary Todd Lincoln even though she had a Laura Linney as Abigail Adams vibe. The movie is both visually stunning and ham handed with the history and the storytelling

Oh well,  I guess it doesn't make the list this week.
