GETTYSBURG AND THE EDSEL




On this date in 1863, Abraham Lincoln gave his historic Gettysburg Address. Thirteen sentences written on the back of an envelope while on the train journey to the fabled graveyard. It turned out to be the most important political speech of any American president in almost two hundred years. There is now a plan to honor Lincoln at Disneyland. For the ir 55th anniversary, Lincoln will finally return to the Disneyland Opera House on Main Street. He will be joined on stahe by an audio animatronic President George Washington who will say a few words. Then Washington will introduce our newest president Barrack Obama. That should be very special. Today in 1958 the Ford Motor Company finally and mercifully put the brakes to the most unpopular car in automotive history-- the one and only Edsel. As they say in Hollywood "What were they thinking?" A picture of this poor unfortunate looking car can be seen on today's site. It was also on this day in 1990 that the "humbug boys"-- otherwise known as MIlli Vanilli were required to give back their Grammy award after it was revealed that neither one of these guys had sung on their own records. They got caught during a performance at a German amusement park. They were performing by lip-syncing (as they usually did in concerts) and the record starting skipping over the lines "Baby, it's over"-- which got repeated over and over and over again. Oh the way we get caught! Happy Birthday today to character actor Alan Young from "Mister Ed" fame. He is 89. Larry King turns 75. Good old Dick Cavett is 72 and Ted Turner is 70. I am starting a new musical idea today a project I call "Death Does Broadway". I wrote a six page treatment and so far and it looks fun. Work continues on "The Revenge of Ichabod Crane". Today is a most beautiful day!
