    piece on Lincoln, but would hope a hell of a lot of Republicans read it, and come these next few weekends also decide to take in Spielberg's film Lincoln -- as a tripswitch for a national dialogue on any number of pertinent topics.  

    Lincoln walked through a great fire.  His political party in the current era barely resembles anything he stood for.  In the metaphor of one writer, the Republican Party, though badly muddied and polluted, is a stream which nevertheless has snow at its source.  

    The Republicans have some serious work to do.  They dishonor the 16th president if they don't do it.
