History and Math Lesson for the Day

Michael Barone writes "Four Score and Two" in reference to the 72 year span from March 4, 2005 to the inaugural of FDR, 72 year span from that inaugural to that of Lincoln, and 72 year span from that inaugual to that of Washington. Fine. But, "four score and two" is 82 years. A score is 20 years. Otherwise, nice column. (I am somewhat surprised President Bush did not give a significant address - knowing this White House's sense of history.) Note that the article has a different title on RCP. I suppose the blame for the above miscalculation should go to the editors of Townhall.
