Now scrolling: The Gettysburg Address

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Greetings from Zoho

Greetings from LincolnFreak at Zoho. Zoho Writer is a great online publishing tool. I can see where entire novels could be written, edited and posted online by authors, bypassing publishers and agents to reach audiences which might otherwise be overlooked.

If Thomas Paine had had Zoho Writer, who knows how many "Common Sense" pamphlets he could have turned out in a day, and what response he might have gotten.

The toolbar options on Zoho are as complete as any WordPerfect program I've ever used. Pictures can be added and text colors changed.

Let's see if I can post this blog to my site. If so, I will have accomplished a great task, since the publisher function keeps telling me it doesn't know who I am.
