why physical libraries needed -1


See that book. You can't download that.

Many are right in saying today echoed Lincoln. And that the times may call for an echo of FDR.

FDR argued that a "Nation must believe in three things. It must believe in the past. It must believe in the future. It must, above all, believe in the capacity of its own people so to learn from the past that they can gain in judgment in creating their own future."

All that was true today.

"THE BIBLE upon which Barack Obama swore his oath on Tuesday was that of Abraham Lincoln. That Bible lay on the bedside table every night that Lincoln spent in the White House, but it was not alone. Beside it lay his copy of the collected works Robert Burns, many of which Lincoln knew by heart, having learned them as a child in the family cabin in Missouri."

From article in The Scotsman.
This year is the 250th Anniversary of Robert Burns.
