Readers, we've been participating in the live-Twitter reenactment of Quantrill's Raid since 6:00 am and we're wiped out and in need of relaxation and PBR.  So instead of reading our usual hijinks, go to the 1863Lawrence site and scroll through the collected #QR1863 tweets.  You'll find both horror and humor there. We send a big shout-out to the organizers for letting us be a small part of it.  Our character is @DrPrentiss1863 .

And you should also check out a nice little piece from the Washington Post about the Twitter-Raid over here. At one point this morning, #QR1863 was trending right alongside the usual trending topics about New Directioners.  So that's pretty damn good.
