Amazing blast from the past, Kevin, where do you find these videos.
And Cher was ugly even way back then.

I happened to be tuned into to Letterman when he got those two back together on his show and then cajoled them into singing "I've Got You Babe."  They did. It was an absolutely stunning moment as they warmed up to it.  Check it out.

More likely, Vball, we're both wrong!
The earliest found prints of the quote are from 1906 and 1907 during Mark Twain's life, but not ascribed to him.  The erroneous attribution to Lincoln happens much later in 1931. Twain may have said it, but Lincoln probably did not.  Maybe Honest Abe would have quoted the Bible:
" Even a fool, when he holds his peace, is counted wise: and he that shuts his lips is esteemed a man of understanding." (Proverb 17:28)

"Somewhere this madness has to end, and life needs to go on." 

Yes, Stantman, the madness ends in March.  The dramatic temporary measures to contain the viral spread do not continue ad infinitum.  The travel ban is for a month, the self-isolation is for a 14-day incubation.  Then the "March madness" is over and summer is here and as usual the colds, flu and virus slow way down.

Yes!  People at the local level can make decisions, too.  State governors, city mayors, college athletic directors, basketball coaches, high school principals, and citizens-- all can stop the insanity of traveling around, gathering together and spreading the disease.
We all need to "do our part" to change our actions now, so that our hospitals and medical systems can handle the coming rise in sick Americans.
Most influenza virus slow way down in warm weather.  This one probably will too.  So steps taken right now will get us over the hump to summer and then buy time to develop and produce the vaccines to combat the virus next winter.
