Can you feel the love tonight?

It is where we are

It's enough for this wide-eyed wanderer

That we've got this far

And can you feel the love tonight?

How it's laid to rest?

Oh, it's enough to make kings and vagabonds

Believe the very best

The book this series is based on is pretty awesome. It reads more like a spy novel than history.

You playing loose with the game rules means more fun (and even education) for your listeners. So it's a win all around. I enjoyed Learning With Corey!

The beard is looking good.

I'm going to wait until Puttin' On Airs before I do a memory dump in re the Booth family. I will say that the Booth family home was about 22 miles from where I grew up and it was called Tudor Hall. It has been restored -- the house even has a little balcony where supposedly, the Booth boys would practice "Romeo and Juliet."

John Wilkes Booth was sent to a boarding school in Catonsville, MD which is southwest of Baltimore -- I believe I have read that he visited the homes of some of his Southern schoolmates and probably saw how sweet life could be when you had enslaved black/brown people doing all the work. (The Booths were always dancing on the brink of destitution.) Hence his preference for the Southern cause.

When I went to school in Pennsylvania, I used to tell my new friends "I'm from Maryland, the state that brought you John Wilkes Booth and Spiro Agnew."

Also James M. Cain & Dashiel Hammet [my cousin].

Jesus walked everywhere, didn't he? Does that make him an ecclesiastical vagabond?
