A few million dollars for the Southworth Library

It looks like Dryden will be getting its own micro-stimulus package, thanks to the record $3.44 million a buyer paid for the Lincoln victory speech they auctioned today. You can see more reporting on it here.

I was worried about the sale in the light of the current economy, but it looks like interest in Lincoln prevailed nonetheless. I hope they'll be able to build an excellent addition to the building!
