A foretaste of the Bicentennial

This "all star" event is self-conciously styled as an early start to the Lincoln Bicentennial.

This is exactly the kind of event that is going to sink the Lincoln Bicentennial.

You get 10 like-minded middle-of-the-road Lincoln buffs, empanel them, and then have what the organizers call "... a wide-ranging debate on all things Lincoln."

Surely you jest.
