    Well, Andy, I’m currently in Gettysburg having breakfast with over 300 “Lincoln fans” at the Lincoln Forum, and in speaking with folks who have seen the movie, I can’t find a single person who was disappointed.

    “So if you’re making a CW-themed movie about, oh, I don’t know — say, the sixteenth president — where do you go to get a dozen pieces of authentic artillery for the film set? Charlie Smithgall of Lancaster, Pennsylvania is your man.”

    Yes, Lancasterians are treated to quite the performance of the 1812 Overture every Fourth of July. When running for mayor, he also had some of the more interesting political fundraisers on his farm outside Lancaster. The entertainment was watching various pieces of siege and field artillery employed in the service of firing at two used cars.

    Bummer and his wife are traveling tonight to a town that has a theater, in order to enjoy Abe and Mary. If it’s historically correct, who cares. Any attempt by Hollywood to analyze an authentic period of history is a milestone. A great cast, a great producer/director and a story line about Lincoln, what more could a simple guy ask for.

      Andy wishes Bummer and his wife safe travels and an enjoyable evening.

    “Lincoln” edged out “Lincoln-Vampire Hunter” for its opening weekend- $21 mil to $16.3 mil. Hoop-de-doo.
