IN THE MAIL: Lincoln’s Wrath: Fierce Mobs, Brilliant Scoundrels, and a President’s Mission to Destroy the Press, by Jeff Manber and Neil Dahlstrom. Some of the rhetoric sounds, um, familiar.

Also a new documentary, Saddam Hussein: Weapon of Mass Destruction. It’s got a very positive blurb from Ben Stein: “I watched it and was overwhelmed. You are a saint to have made it.”

The house documentarian was anxious to watch it, so perhaps she’ll post a review, too.
