who knew? abraham lincoln was a gay american

dinitia smith, in her 16 december 2004 new york times article, finding homosexual threads in lincoln's legend, tackles the question: was abraham lincoln a gay american?

what a hoot! abe, of all the great presidents, was homosexual, and apparently wasn't too concerned about keeping it absolutely secret. the secrecy has been the job of fraudulent historians who find it approprite to exclude, expunge and embellish soviet-style according to their own prejudice or intent. my thoughts? well, i'm going to have to read the book first, and that won't be for a while as my reading list is particulalry long and ambitious already. maybe andymatic, himself writing from the land of lincoln, will get to it first.
