I know I was supposed to post “more expensive healthcare” after Monday’s column.  One thing led to another.  Stay tuned.

For now:

Be sure to watch full screen.  These are awesome.  What people and things really looked like.  Tolstoy with his grandchildren.  Darwin, Lincoln, Tesla.  A Civil War battlefield.  The (horse-drawn) cab stand at Madison Square Park.  Boxing before it was regulated.  And so much more.  Even this quote from Albert Einstein, refusing surgery: “I want to go when I want.  It is tasteless to prolong life artificially.   I have done my share, it is time to go.  I will do it elegantly.”*

Nine minutes.  Have a great day.

 

*The quote appears to be true.  The caption, “pictured with his therapist,” is not.  As best I can Google, Einstein had no therapist.
