Three things to share with the class

1. Does anyone remember the school-yard jump-rope chant, "Lincoln Lincoln/What were you thinkin'/What the hell have you been drinkin'?" If so, please share the rest of it, because I've got those three lines stuck in my head and IT'S DRIVING ME CRAZY.
1a. Also, please explain why little girls in the 80s were jumping rope to chants about lushes who made poor decisions.

2. Guess where I am? Suggestions on the Lincoln, NB, "nightlife" welcomed.

3. I would like to put forward a new rule: I strongly urge that any American paper/article/book that cites Sun Tzu be banished to the remainder bins/round file (as appropriate). I am so sick of reading quotes attributed to him that more likely came off of a Successory poster.
