Speaking of famous old people, this is a children’s book by Nathaniel Hawthorne, published in 1841, before the works that would later establish Hawthorne as one of the most famous American authors of the 19th century.  

Due to the solemn undertones contained in most of Hawthorne’s novels, some may be surprised to find that earlier in his career, he wrote books intended for a younger audience. This book, Famous Old People, was written as a companion to Grandfather’s Chair, which was published earlier in the year. Both are historical accounts of New England told by recalling the various owners of Grandfather’s well-traveled chair.

Seriously Scotland, you are giving me an ulcer. More so than usual, I mean.

mrstsk:

Let’s think like adults. Let’s think realistically, because an independent Scotland is now an entirely realistic possibility. Let’s think, in fact, like Niccolo Machiavelli, the 15th century Florentine writer and strategist whose name has become a byword for bold pragmatism and realpolitik….
